Tame Impala and Flume were among the winners at last night's ARIA Awards.

Tame Impala took home three awards from the Australian ceremony, including Best Album for their 2012 LP 'Lonerism'. The band also won the award for Best Rock Album and Best Band at the event, which took place at Sydney’s Star Event Centre, Billboardreports.

Meanwhile, electronic producer Flume also picked up three awards in the categories of Producer Of The Year, Breakthrough Artist and Best Male Artist. Speaking from the stage about his win in the latter category, the producer (real name Harley Streten) said: "I actually did a bit of research and found out that never in the history of the ARIAs has someone who doesn't sing won this award. I'm not a frontman. I prefer to spend my time sitting in a dark room, in front of a laptop. So hopefully it opens the floodgates for producers around Oz and people with bad voices in general."

Other winners on the night included Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, who won Best Independent Release and Best Adult Contemporary plus Best International Artist winners One Direction.

Earlier this year Tame Impala teamed up with The Flaming Lips to release a joint EP. The Flaming Lips have covered 'Runway, Houses, City, Clouds' as well as 'Elephant' for the special vinyl release, while Tame Impala have contributed live recordings of The Flaming Lips' 'Are You A Hypnotist?' and 'Silver Trembling Hands' to the EP.
