Austrian band My Ugly Clementine have won this year’s IMPALA European Independent Album Of The Year award with their debut LP, ‘Vitamin C’.

“We are absolutely speechless and feel honoured”, says the band’s Sophie Lindinger. “It’s strange to have written and produced this record in a DIY setting and to see it standing in line with these great artists and their magnificent works that won this award in the past ten years. We are now even more desperately waiting to finally be able to go out and hit the stages again. We can’t wait to return all the love we got, just by sharing our message and music with the people out there. Love”.

Helen Smith, Executive Chair of IMPALA, adds: “‘Vitamin C’ is a great debut album from a band who managed to sell out their shows in record time – just wait till we can go to shows again! My Ugly Clementine fought off some very tough competition and still emerged the clear winner with votes coming in from all across Europe. The album and the band have clear messages about avoiding gender stereotypes which IMPALA fully support – music is a great tool for tolerance and inclusion, so get ‘Vitamin C’ on your playlist!”

Other nominees this year included Rina Sawayama, Ane Brun and Sondre Lerche. From My Ugly Clementine’s winning album, this is ‘Never Be Yours’:
