Who: Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys and Boom Pip teamed up to create Neon Neon, an 80s-styled electronic outfit.
What Are They Nominated For: "Stainless Style", a conceptual album about playboy designer JohnDeLorean.
Why They Should Win: They've written such catchy pop-electronica. Some might say that they're not doing anything new, since their style is firmly rooted in the 80s, but in a way that makes them more interesting than some of the other new bands coming out right now. "I Lust You" always ends up in your head whenever and wherever you hear it, and so does new single "I Told Her On Alderaan". Gruff Rhys still shows all of his odd quirks on this album as well, and you've got to love that weird little Welsh pixie really.
Chances of Winning: Well, I think I'll be rooting for them because I love "Stainless Style" - it's one of my albums of the year so far. However, they have a mountainous task to get past Radiohead, Elbow and the Last Shadow Puppets. I wouldn't be surprised if they were one of the dark horses but then people might say that Laura Marling has more of a chance than Neon Neon does. Bet if you're feeling incredibly lucky - you never know, there might be another surprise like last year when Klaxons won against heavily tipped Bat For Lashes and Arctic Monkeys.
