Everything Everything took home the The Times Breakthrough Award at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards which took place on January 15th and were broadcast on Sky Arts last night.

The Manchester based band, who blew us away with their superb debut 'Man Alive' last year, beat competition from comedian Greg Davies and artist Simon Fujiwara to win the multidisciplinary breakthrough award.

This year's awards are the first since the former ITV programme The South Bank Show went to Sky Arts, and saw Plan B win the Sky Arts Award in the pop category, an award previously won by Florence and the Machine.

'Man Alive' has also earned Everything Everything a place on the shortlist for the Guardian First Album Award alongside the likes of Tinie Tempah, Marina and the Diamonds, Rumer and Delphic, and is also expected to be nominated for the Xfm New Music Award which recognises the best British debut album of the year.

The band recently visited Ireland to play for Other Voices in Dingle, a performance which will be broadcast on the RTE2 music series on Wednesday March 9th. They also appeared on Radio One's Live Lounge last week, performing an in-studio cover of Rihanna's hit single 'What's My Name?'
