Tame Impala Nabs Song Of The Year At 2013 APRA Awards

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 18, 2013

The 2013 APRA Awards have taken place overnight, with Tame Impala, 360, Sia, The Rubens and The Seekers all taking home gongs, and one particular earworm-dropping Canadian also got a little love.

Just as you’ve expect, psych-rock overlords Tame Impala reign of the charts is still strong, with the Perth crew nabbing song of the year for Feels Like We Only Go Backwards. Though there was some pretty stiff competition for the award, their toughest rival was probably themselves – they were nominated twice, with Elephant missing out this time round.

360 and his main man Styalz Fuego were crowned Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year with Timomatic earning (is that the correct word, earning?) Most Played Song for his track Set It Off, which also scored Pop Work Of The Year. Reppin’ the Indie side of things, The Rubens got Rock Work Of The Year for their mega hit My Gun. Aussie hip hop also made one other appearance on the night – Urban Work Of The Year taken out by Hilltop Hoods for I Love It.

I know what you’re thinking now – where’s Gotye at? Well, Somebody That I Use To Know was awarded for most plays overseas. International songwriting superstar and recently resurgent solo star Sia also received a thumbs up for Songwriter Of The Year.

Ash Grunwald pocketed Blues & Roots Work Of The Year for Longtime with country music’s The McClymonts taking out the award for their genre, and EDM troupe Feenixpawl & Ivan Gough feat. Georgi Kay taking out the award for theirs.

The Seekers have been honoured by receiving the coveted Ted Albert Award For Outstanding Services To Australian Music.

And yeah…Carly Rae Jepsen and Call Me Maybe got International Song Of The Year. When will it end?
