Although the judges have been inundated with eligible albums this year, there is one that has already won them over enough to be welcomed into the shortlist: Hermitude’s HyperParadise. The fourth studio album from the Blue Mountains natives’ is the first of nine albums that will be included in The 8th Australian Music Prize’s short list. 

It’s a release that has already earned them a slew of praise, including an AIR award, an Aria nomination, a triple j JAward for best video and a triple j JAward nomination for best Australian album. The Coopers Amp shortlisting is another feather in the duo’s cap, as critical acclaim for HyperParadise continues to grow.

Hermitude says: “We're totally stoked as a predominantly instrumental duo to be short listed for The Amp!”
