Last night (Thursday, 5 March) The Meteor Choice Music Prize live event took place at Vicar Street, Dublin.
The Winner for the Meteor Choice Music Prize Irish Album of the Year was selected by a Judging panel that was made up of Irish music media professionals. Before choosing the winner last night, the judges deliberated at length.
The judges picked the album of the year solely, on the music rather than album sales or airplay.
The judges announced The Gloaming as the winners of the Meteor Choice Music Prize Irish Album of the Year 2014 for the album “The Gloaming“. The band are currently touring in Australia and couldn’t make the live Vicar Street event last night.
Check out “The Sailor’s Bonnet” from the winning album “The Gloaming” below:
Next up was the Meteor Choice Music Prize Irish Song of the Year. The Coronas, Delorentos, Hozier, Kodaline, Kormac, Little Hours, The Minutes, Sinead O’Connor, The Riptide Movement, and the Script were all included in the the 2014 Irish Song of the Year shortlist. The Public decided the winner by voting via the Meteor website for their favourite song.
The Script came out on top and bagged the public’s vote for their song “Superheroes“. The prize was presented to the band by Richard Moat, CEO, eircom Group.
Listen to the winning song “Superheroes” below:
Congratulations to both winners!
