Interview: Hermitude – AMP Winners

All artists on the Australian Music Prize (AMP) shortlist were worthy candidates, but in the end there can be only one winner. Having made such a huge impact both home and abroard with their fourth studio album HyperParadise, instrumental act Hermitude came out on top.

Although the win may have come as a shock to Hermitude’s Dubs (Luke Dubber) and Elgusto (Angus Stuart), for fans of the hip-hop/electronic duo, the victory is well-earned. Signature single Speak of the Devil reached even the casual observer and showed the ever-expanding range of Hermitude.

With the AMP now on the shelf and $30,000 of prize money burning a hole in their back pocket, minus any celebratory bar tabs, Hermitude will turn their attention to writing a follow-up to their award-winning HyperParadise.
