Montreal art-rock act Karkwa wins Canada’s Mercury/AMP equivalent, the Polaris Prize.

The independent act snatched the award from far better known Canadians such as Tegan & Sara, Caribou, Broken Social Scene and Besnard Lakes.

Karkwa’s album Les Chemins de Verre scored the prize for Best Album Of The Year.

It’s the first French-language album to win in the five year history of the Polaris Prize.

With the award comes $20,000 and the honour of standing alongside previous winners Fucked Up, Caribou, Patrick Watson, and Final Fantasy. Full Story at Undercover
