A huge congrats to Agnes Obel who has been named the winner of this year’s IMPALA European Independent Album Of The Year award! She was recognised for her third album Citizen of Glass, which was released via Play It Again Sam in October 2016.
Obel succeeds previous IMPALA winners such as Caribou, José Gonzalez, Adele and The xx. She was shortlisted for the honour alongside 24 other artists including Radiohead, Dubioza Kollektiv, Highasakite, Klaus Johann Grobe, Sara Renar, Lost Frequencies and Kase.O.
IMPALA executive chair Helen Smith praised the strength of the nominees, adding: “This year’s deserved winner is a Danish artist, living in Germany and signed to a British label first launched in Belgium. That really sums up the European independent music sector today.”
