Arlo Parks leads the nominations for the 2021 AIM Awards with four nods.

The 20-year-old singer is the front-runner at this year’s Association of Independent Music Awards, which will take place on August 25 with a virtual event co-hosted by Tiffany Calver and Jamz Supernova.

Arlo has been nominated for Best Independent Album for her debut album ‘Collapsed in Sunbeams’ and Best Independent Track for the single ‘Hope’, as well as Best Independent Video, and UK Independent Breakthrough.

Of her four nominations, Arlo Parks said in a statement: “What an honour to be nominated for four AIM Awards! This is far beyond my wildest dreams and I’m so glad my work has reached this far and touched so many, especially in these tumultuous times.”

Hot on her heels are Yorkshire synthpop band Working Men’s Club, who are shortlisted for three awards including Best Independent Album for their critically-acclaimed self-titled debut.

There are also multiple double-nominees, including AJ Tracey, Bicep, Che Lingo, ENNY, Floating Points, Fontaines D.C., Lava La Rue, and Tkay Maidza.

Elsewhere, Paulette Long has been named the first recipient of a brand new Diversity Champion award, which she will be awarded for her dedication to encouraging diversity and inclusion in all areas of the music business.

This year’s ceremony will be a free public event, and viewers can tune in on the On Air streaming platform, or on YouTube or Facebook.

Fans can also vote for the Best Live Act category – which has been altered this year to be the Best Live [Streamed] Act amid the COVID-19 pandemic – at the On Air site, where voting is open until July 5.
