Sol3 Mio tops Lorde for album of year

Sol3 Mio has beaten Lorde to the top of the charts again:

. . . In the New Zealand Albums chart Sol3 Mio and Lorde finished number one and number two respectively, for the second year in a row.

On the overall album charts Sol3 Mio’s self-titled record managed to come in second only to Ed Sheeran’s hugely popular X.

“Sol3 Mio don’t get radio play, but they are quite clearly stars. Their live performance translates into the record, and word of mouth is enormously popular in this country,” says Mr Vaughan.

Sol3 Mio’s record is now seven times platinum. . .

I don’t think this takes into account digital downloads and So3 Mio’s win could reflect the age of their fans who might be older and more likely to buy a CD or DVD than download music on the internet.

Though, I number myself among their fans and am more comfortable with discs than digital versions but I did download their album.
