Wolf Alice were honored with the 2018 Mercury Music Prize on Thursday for their sophomore album, “Visions of a Life”. The reward is given every year to the best album in the United Kingdom by a British or Irish act, and includes a £25,000 prize. Noel Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys and Lily Allen were also nominated. They also beat bookies’ favorite Nadine Shah, who was tipped to win with her album Holiday Destination, which recounts her experiences as a second-generation immigrant.

“The first label meeting we ever had, we walked into a room, and the geezer said, ‘You don’t look like a band at all. What are you? What are you supposed to be? All your songs sound different. You don’t look like each other,'” bassist Theo Ellis said at the ceremony at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

“We never really figured it out, but here we are,” he continued. The band’s debut album, My Love Is Cool, was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2015.
