So so so so so so grateful and proud that we won SKAP's and Manifest's prize 'Composer of the Year', for our album Devotion. We were really shaky and hadn't prepared a speech since we didn't thought we would win, but we want to send a BIG thank you to both SKAP and Manifest for believing in us, and to Manifest who does this gala, emphazising Swedish indie music like this. We were also nominated as Rock of the Year but that prize went to much well-deserved ShitKid.
The jury's motivation in Swedish:
"Motivering: Med små medel skapar de låtar som är betydligt större än summan av dess delar. De har lyckats med konststycket att skriva musik som låter bekant men ändå har ett helt eget uttryck.
Vinnare i kategorin Årets kompositör: Pale Honey – Devotion (Bolero Recordings) Kompositörer: Tuva Lodmark, Nelly Daltrey, Anders Lagerfors"

Our cowbell is the best. We love sweat and holy grails. Our guitarist can headbang at 2040 bpm (bangs per minute) but you will never see it.
Nelly is a tiny creature who lives on ice cream and beer. She is rarely seen outside her pillow fortress. Gets angry if she needs to go out in the sun. Please don't make her go out in the sun.
Tuva spends her days being awesome. Her interests include watering her plants, taking pictures of her plants and of course drinking beer (with her plants).
