Disclosure are an English electronic music duo. The duo are brothers Howard (born 11 May 1994) and Guy Lawrence (born 25 May 1991).[3] They grew up in Reigate, Surrey.[4] Their first album, Settle, released on 3 June 2013, by PMR Records, was nominated for Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Their second album, Caracal (2015) was also nominated for Best Dance/Electronica Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

The group had their first UK hit in October 2012 with "Latch".[5] This recording was a collaboration with other musicians, co-written with Jimmy Napes and featuring the vocals from Sam Smith. It reached number 11 in the UK Singles Chart.[6]
