Congratulations to our client Courtney Barnett who outshined at the 2015 ARIA awards this past Thursday and took home four awards: “Best Female”, “Best Independent Release” (Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit), “Breakthrough Artist” and “Best Cover Art” (Sometimes I Sit And Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit). The ARIA awards is an annual series of awards celebrating the Australian music industry.
The Windish Agency wants to congratulate Lorde, BROODS and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, who all took home awards last night at the 50th annual New Zealand Music Awards. BROODS dominated the ceremony taking home four awards: “Album of the Year” (Evergreen), “Best Group”, “Best Pop Album” (Evergreen) and “Radio Airplay Record of the Year” (“Mother & Father”). Lorde took home two: “Single of the Year” (“Yellow Flicker Beat”) and “International Achievement” and Unknown Mortal Orchestra won “Best Alternative Album” (Multi-Love).
A big congrats to our clients Major Lazer and MØ! Their song with DJ Snake, “Lean On”, is now the most-streamed song on Spotify of all time! With 526 million plays worldwide and counting. “Lean On” was already named number 1 on “Spotify’s Top 2015 Summer Songs”. Also featured on this list is OMI’s “Cheerleader” at number 2. Since album sales have become a smaller part of the industry, measuring streams and top lists have become an integral part to an artists popularity.
