Hawkline and Joanna Gruesome becoming firm Clash favourites.

Set up to recognise Welsh talent, the Welsh Music Prize is set to return later this year. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in Cardiff later this year, with the shortlist being unveiled a few moments ago.

So, without further ado, the nominations for this year's Welsh Music Prize are as follows:

Euros Childs – Summer Special (Clash REPORT)
Fist of the First Man – Fist of the First Man
Georgia Ruth – Week of Pines
Laurence Made Me Cry – The Diary of Me
