Autamata and Jape up for UK Music Video Awards

Irish indie-electro heroes Autamata and Jape have been shortlisted for the UK Music Video Awards, which take place in London next month.

Autamata and Jape have both been nominated for ‘Best Budget Video’ at the UK Music Video Awards 08, which take place on October 14 in London’s Odeon West End.

Their respective ‘Need You Sunshine’ and ‘Floating’ clips are up against Example’s ‘Me And Mandy’, Lise Westzynthius’ ‘Childlike Curves’ and These New Puritans’ ‘Elvis’.

Flying the flag for Ireland in the ‘Best Styling In A Video’ category is Roisin Murphy who’ll have to see off Gnarls Barkley, Klaxons, Late Of The Pier, Sonny J and The Hoosiers if she’s to go home with the silverware.

There’s also a ‘Best New Director’ nod for D.A.D.D.Y. who, in addition to Jape, have produced promos for the likes of Ash, Bell X1 and We Are Scientists.
