I’m thrilled to announce that Dark Model’s first album has been nominated for the 14th Annual Independent Music Awards (The IMAs) in the Dance/Electronica Album category.
In addition to a jury vote by a quite impressive set of artists and industry experts, there is also an audience award called Vox Populi. So register and cast your vote by giving 5 stars to your favorite (which I hope will be Dark Model, of course). I would appreciate if you let your friends know to vote as well!
