Their politically-charged debut Reclaim Australia (Bad Apples Music/Golden Era Records) won the 12th annual Australian Music Prize in March, recognizing the best Australian album of 2016. At the AIR Awards, A.B. Original are up for best independent artist, best independent album or EP, best independent single (for “January 26” featuring Dan Sultan), breakthrough independent artist of the year, and best independent hip-hop album.
