Tui time at the Vector

Auckland band Midnight Youth and London-based Ladyhawke — aka Pip Brown — have both been nominated for a number of awards to be presented at this year’s New Zealand Music Awards held at the Vector Arena in Auckland on October 8. Modular artist Ladyhawke has picked up six nominations, including album of the year for her self-titled debut, and single of the year for ‘My Delirium’. Warner Music’s Midnight Youth gathered six nods as well, with the rockers similarly nominated for best album (The Brave Don’t Run) and single (‘All On Our Own’). Both Ladyhawke and Midnight Youth are also nominees in the people’s choice category, together with two other multiple-award nominees — Move The Crowd Records’ Smashproof and Fat Freddy’s Drop (The Drop label), who picked up five and four nominations respectively.
