Norwegian pop dreamers have picked up the prestigious Spellemann Award for Best Indie Album for 2013's Between Places at the 2013 ceremony in Norway this past weekend.

"2013 was a big year for us because our debut LP finally saw the light. Although it had been ready for a while it was nice to get it out and spread/get some nice vibes. Most of 2012 and 2013 has been spent writing and arranging new songs for our next album. It's going to be angelicus spectacularis and La Sagrada Familia. But at the same time auditus and nutritivae.
It wasn't just a great year for us but for a lot of our friends and mother earth. Here is a list of a couple of the best things that happened in 2013."
