BRITs RISING STAR CROWNED
12/8/23

Island-signed band The Last Dinner Party have been crowned winners of the 2024 BRITs Rising Star award. They are only the second group to win.

The indie-rock quintet will release their debut album, Prelude to Ecstasy, in February. It follows a string of singles that includes “Nothing Matters,” which hit #16 in the U.K. in July, “Sinner” and “My Lady of Mercy.”

They’ve been in the studio with Arctic Monkeys and Haim producer James Ford. What’s described as a “breakthrough summer” this year saw them packing tents at festivals across the U.K. and Europe.

In perfect five-part harmony, The Last Dinner Party said of their win: “We are so proud beyond measure to have won the BRITs Rising Star. It’s an honor to achieve something so iconic so early on in our career and we can only hope to keep making music that connects with all the incredible people who have listened to and supported us so far. Thank you.”

They are the first winners to be announced for the 2024 BRIT Awards, which take place in London on 3/2.
