IMPALA has revealed a list of nominations for the fifth edition of the award IMPALA “European Independent Album of the Year” and one of the nominees is Nine Romic’s album ‘Stablo’.

This award is a European Mercury-style prize showcasing the musical talent and diversity of releases by European independent labels. Voting is currently taking place on the 23-album shortlist to decide who will succeed Spanish band Guadalupe Plata. The best album will be selected by a jury of IMPALA Board members, with the winner announced mid-February.
