The Dundee four-piece are victorious with 'Wasted Little DJs'
The View have won the Shockwaves NME Award for Best Track at this year’s ceremony.
The Dundee four-piece earlier tonight (March 1) performed an acoustic version of album track ‘Face For The Radio’ at the London Hammersmith Palais.
They were presented with the award for ‘Wasted Little DJs’ by ’Popworld’ presenter Alexa Chung and The Cribs frontman Ryan Jarman.
Referencing the singer’s accident at last year’s awards, when Jarman dived across a table and cut his back open on all the glasses, tonight’s host Lauren Laverne gave the Crib a first aid kit.
The other nominees were:
Dirty Pretty Things – ‘Bang Bang You’re Dead’
The Killers – ‘When You Were Young’
Klaxons – ‘Atlantis To Interzone’
Muse – ‘Supermassive Black Hole’
Picking up his prize, The View frontman Kyle Falconer said: “Cheers mum and dad and everybody that ever helped us out, the record company and that. Cheers to the wasted little DJs.”
