You want the full disclosure on Disclosure? These guys are hot. Hot enough to lead the field for Britain’s top music awards with four nominations each. Hot enough to be considered both the best group and biggest breakthrough act of the year. That’s how hot.
And they’re just getting started.
The BRIT Awards in 2014 are dominated by newcomers, but none has generated more talk than the brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence. In addition to the group/breakthrough act, they’re also up for best single and best album. And that haul of awards they could potentially take home best tells the story of Disclosure, which picked up its first prominent national radio support two years ago and has been riding high ever since.
It was the release of “Tenderly”/”Flow” that had fans taking notice of the Lawrence brothers, but it was the EP “The Face” that gave them significant traction. It included a remix of “Running” by Jessie Ware, which hit the top on the charts and became a staple of the 2012 Festival Circuit.
Disclosure had their first UK significant hit with “Latch” in October 2012, then continued their upward trajectory with consecutive Top 10 hits “White Noise” and “You and Me.” By the time their full album, “Settle,” bowed on June 3, 2013, it rocketed to the very top of the UK Chart and was later nominated for a Grammy.
In 2013, Disclosure’s world tour covered more than 40 European, American and Canadian cities. They played everywhere from Coachella to Lollapalooza, with more North American dates booked through March 2014.
