Wolf Alice pick up the 2018 Hyundai Mercury Prize

Wolf Alice have picked up the 2018 Hyundai Mercury Prize with their sophomore album 'Visions of a Life'. Flying the flag for Britrock, Wolf Alice haven't been phased by second album syndrome. Also winning the prize on their second nomination, Wolf Alice will be likely contenders to rise up billings in the coming year as the UK festival market scours for a desperately needed Main Stage powerhouse.
