Alternative rock band Bastille is in the running for best British group, British breakthrough artiste, single and best album.
Other nominees in the music awards include David Bowie and One Direction.
Music acts Bastille and Disclosure led the nominations for Britain’s top music awards on Thursday, up for four prizes each at the annual Brit Awards, and veteran singer David Bowie was put forward for two awards.
The alternative rock band Bastille and electronic music duo Disclosure were both nominated as best British group and British breakthrough act of the year, while also competing for best single and best album. Bastille was recognised for the single Pompeii and album Bad Blood.
Disclosure – made up of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence – was put forward for its single White Noise and album Settle. “We’re completely blown away by the four nominations! When we started the band we never thought we’d be recognised in such a way so the whole thing is an awesome surprise,” Dan Smith from Bastille, which formed in 2010, said in a statement.
But while the newcomers led the nominations, veteran singer Bowie, 67, reappeared on the list after a comeback last year when he released his first new material for a decade. He received nominations for best British male singer and best album for The Next Day. The winners of British pop’s biggest night will be announced on Feb 19. — Reuters
