IMTV win for King Kong Co

Waterford’s very own King Kong Company scooped the prestigious ‘viewers choice’ award at this week’s Irish Music TV Awards in Dublin. This comes hot on the heels of the band announcing a new single to be released on Youtube on Christmas Day, and their only gig – ever – in February 2012.

The IMTV awards, supported by IMRO, recognise excellence in music videos released by Irish artists in the previous 12 months. Over 40 bands were nominated in 10 different categories, featuring the cream of Irish music including The Villagers, Lisa Hannigan, James Vincent McMorrow, Ryan Sheridan, Gavin Friday and Republic of Loose. From the off on Wednesday night at The Sugar Club, the organisers acknowledged this year as the best yet for the high standard of music videos. Making their role of choosing winners even more difficult!
