The alternative Brit Award nomination: Two Gallants

This year's Brit Award nominations are announced in London on Thursday.

The Brits honour the year's biggest and best stars, and all artists must have had a top 40 single or album in the UK to be eligible.

San Francisco blues-rock duo Two Gallants draw comparisons with The White Stripes.

Adam Stephens and Tyson Vogel have been friends since childhood and released their fourth album The Bloom and the Blight in 2012 but they were not eligible for the Brit nominations.
