Congrats to Two Door Cinema Club, who took the top prize with their album 'Tourist History' at the Irish Choice Music Prize last night! The award is regarded as the Irish album of the year. Of the 10 nominated acts, Two Door came out the definitive winner based on votes from an 11 judge panel of music media from print and broadcasting.
The Choice Music Prize is modeled after the Mercury Music Prize to focus on Irish popular music and reward artistic merit rather than radio airplay or record sales numbers.
The band are donating their €10,000 winnings to a local charity in their hometown of Bangor in Northern Ireland!
