Ladyhawke and Empire of the Sun Nominated for Brit Awards!

 

19 January 2010

Local heroes Empire of the Sun and Ladyhawke have both been nominated for Brit Awards, the UK's equivalent of the ARIAS!

Empire of the Sun scooped a pile of ARIAs for their album Walking On A Dream and could possibly score even more trophies after being nominated for International Breakthrough Act and International Album in this year's Brit Awards.

New Zealand via Sydney/Melbourne retro-pop singer Ladyhawke has scooped a nomination for best International Female Solo Artist. It'll be tough going for her though - she's up against Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Norah Jones, and Shakira!

The 2010 Brit Awards will be be held on the 16th February 2010 in Earls Court, London and hosted by Peter Kay.
