New Zealand pop act Ladyhawke beat down any controversy over her five nominations at last night’s Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) awards with two wins, taking home both the best single (‘My Delirium’) and album (Ladyhawke) prizes for a breakthrough artist. Commenting on the dispute surrounding her participation, she told MTV Australia: “It’s a shame that there was a bit of dark shadow cast on it. I didn’t want to offend anyone… I just write exactly the type of music I want to listen to myself.” Previous ARIA award winner Sarah Blasko, who has established herself as one of Australia’s most loved and continually evolving artists, took home the award for best female artist following the success of her third album As Day Follows Night [review / interview]. Other winners included Sia for the lovely TV Is My Parent DVD and independent artist Bertie Blackman for her third album Secrets & Lies [review].

Wears The Trousers predicts that 2010 will be the year that the UK finally falls in love with Sarah Blasko as her record label Dew Process have licensed the Europe-wide release of As Day Follows Night to Mike Batt’s Dramatico Records (Katie Melua, Marianne Faithfull). The album is expected in March.
