Tame Impala have reacted to their International Group win at tonight’s Brit Awards, revealing the experience has been “pretty intense”.
The Australian group beat the likes of Alabama Shakes, Eagles of Death Meal, Major Lazer and U2 at the ceremony, held at London’s O2 Arena this evening.
Speaking to DIY after their win, Kevin Parker explained: “I was just happy for all the people at our table – the record label and stuff,They’re the ones who put all the effort into up getting to the next level.
“These kind of things [the award] are a physical symbol of that kind of stuff. The UK was the first place we came overseas. It’s always been pretty special.”
Summing up their Brits experience, he concluded: “It’s been pretty intense – definitely the most extravagant awards show we’ve ever been to.”
Parker was also quizzed about Brit attendee Rihanna, who covered the band’s ‘New Person, Same Old Mistakes’ on her recent album ‘Anti’.
He said: “She hasn’t said hello – she was quite rude in that regard,” before quickly adding: “Obviously I’m joking!”
