Anna Meredith has been nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize, one of the most sought-after recorded music awards in the UK.
The nomination is in respect of her hugely impressive second album FIBS, which was released late last year on the Moshi Moshi label:
'FIBS is brimming with contrary combinations, irreverent genre-bending and serious innovation.'
