MU­SI­CAL tal­ent Far­ra­day Tween, of Cur­ram­bine, and Calvin Ben­nett have taken out the WAM Song of the Year Un­der-14 cat­e­gory for a sec­ond year.

The pair, who are the band Far­ra­day’s Cage, heard about their lat­est win at the awards party last month.

Dar­ling­ton gui­tar-play­ing song­writer Ben­nett said Tween’s vo­cals con­veyed a smooth and bluesy edge to his lat­est song, The Fire In­side.

“We were stoked to win the Un­der-14 award for a sec­ond year and to be listed as fi­nal­ists in the adult ‘blues and roots’ sec­tion was real val­i­da­tion of our work,” he said.

“I’m really pleased that the song’s been recog­nised not once but twice.

“It’s a per­sonal song for me that I wrote and we recorded and mixed in my bedroom, so be­ing nom­i­nated is really spe­cial.”
