For Best Alternative Music Album, their self-titled release surpassed albums by Arctic Monkeys, Big Thief, Björk and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
Singer Ryan Teasdale, who agreed to join the group, was a little taken aback and commented: what are you doing here I don’t know, but here I am. I was very surprised this year. It’s amazing to see such a small British band and being on tour wouldn’t have been possible without an amazing crew. ”
