The success simply doesn’t seem to end for The Common Linnets. Last year’s Eurovision runners-up can note a few more award nominations down, this time in Germany.
The Dutch group has been nominated for the ECHO Awards. The ECHOs are pretty much the German equivalent of the BRIT Awards and the Grammy Awards. The Common Linnets have been nominated in two categories, Newcomer International and Band Pop/Rock International.
In the category Newcomer International, there’s some fierce competition for the Dutch pop/country group. They’re taking on Lorde, Kiesza, George Ezra and Sam Smith there. As if that weren’t enough, the category for best Band Pop/Rock International is perhaps even heavier. Besides The Common Linnets, that category consists of Pink Floyd, Sunrise Avenue, U2 and Coldplay.
Ever since participating in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, The Common Linnets have shown their musical success throughout Europe. The band is currently working on their second studio album.
