Mercury Music Prize nominees Alt-J have revealed their plans for the Mercury Music Prize after party - and it involves alcohol, a lot of alcohol.
The band say they are looking forward to celebrating their success with friends and family at the event, despite believing their chances of winning to be very small.
"We’ll get extremely drunk at an after party with our friends and family," said drummer Thom Green in an interview with Spotify. "Then I’ll recover the next day listening to Radiohead’s In Rainbows and Monstar’s Harder/Bastard.
Speaking to the music streaming service of the band's chances, Green adds that he believes Alt-J have just 8.3% of winning the award.
"We weren’t too surprised, just very relieved," he added. "We’d been tipped to win before we’d even been nominated, so the pressure was on."
An Awesome Wave is the most popular of the Mercury nominees with Spotify users
Official figures from Spotify reveal Alt-J as the people's choice to win the award, as users have streamed the band's album An Awesome Wave more than any other album on the Mercurys shortlist.
"We can't predict who the judges will pick to win this Thursday's Mercury Prize, but if it were up to music fans on Spotify, Alt-J would be the band picking up the award," says Will Hope, Head of Label Relations at Spotify. "Ben Howard is a close second based on recent streaming habits we've seen."
