The BRIT Awards 2024 with Mastercard have today announced The Last Dinner Party as the winners of the prestigious BRITs Rising Star award.

The Nothing Matters outfit - comprised of Georgia Davies, Lizzie Mayland, Abigail Morris, Aurora Nishevci and Emily Roberts - have become the second ever band to take home the honour, after making it to the shortlist with Caity Baser and Sekou.

The Last Dinner Party said: “We are so proud beyond measure to have won the BRITs Rising Star. It’s an honour to achieve something so iconic so early on in our career and we can only hope to keep making music that connects with all the incredible people who have listened to and supported us so far. Thank you!”

The Last Dinner Party - Nothing Matters

The Last Dinner Party quickly gained notoriety this year from their melody-rich, guitar-heavy leftfield indie-rock dramas and live performances. After heading into the studio with James Ford in April 2023, the band released their infectious Nothing Matter single, immediately stealing hearts with their sound alongside its visuals.

By July, the band had released Sinner, another unexpected alt pop epic that fuelled the now fully-formed zeitgeist and set the band up for a summer of festival dates across the UK and Europe. Their next offering, My Lady Of Mercy, only compounded interest in the five-piece and firmly set them up as ones to watch for next year.

Their hotly anticipated debut album Prelude To Ecstasy is set for release in February 2024.

The band join a list of impressive names to have won the honour (originally known as Critics' Choice), which successfully predicted the future stars of the likes of Adele, Sam Fender, Sam Smith, , Ellie Goulding, Florence + The Machine and more.
