Obscure Plan B Scores Double Novellos Delight


Plan B
A little-known British rock band has stunned the music industry by gaining two prestigious Ivor Novello award nominations before even scoring a hit record.


Everything Everything, who are based in Manchester, north England, formed in 2007 and released their debut album less than a year ago. It barely scraped into the top 20 on the U.K. album chart, and their most successful track reached a lowly 121 in the singles rundown in August last year.

The four-piece band has now received critical acclaim and a place on the shortlist for two Ivor Novello honours - for best album and best song, for "Man Alive" and "My Kz", "Ur Bf", respectively.

The group is going up against British rapper Plan B and Bombay Bicycle Club in the album category, and against "Foals and Villagers" for best song.

Plan B scores a second nomination - he's battling it out with Kylie Minogue and Scouting for Girls in the most performed song category - while Mercury Prize winners The xx, singer Katy B, and rapper Tinie Tempah are up for the best contemporary song honour.

The awards ceremony is due to take place in London on Tuesday.
