A band that formed after meeting at the Edinburgh College of Art have been tipped as second favourites to win the Barclaycard Mercury Prize.

Django Django – thought to be the first city band to be nominated for the acclaimed award – were named in the shortlist of 12 alongside established acts Plan B and the The Maccabees.

The four-piece, whose musical style has been described as “folktronica”, first crossed paths in the Capital’s art scene before later forming a group in London.
