Marlon Williams is winner of this year’s Silver Scroll Award for his ballad ‘Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore’.
The annual award acknowledges excellence in songwriting. Last year’s Silver Scroll went to Ella Yelich O’Connor (Lorde), Jack Antonoff and Joel Little for their song ‘Green Light’.
Williams’ song is a duet with fellow musician Aldous Harding about the pair’s break-up.
“I’m proud of the song because it taught me something. I’ve never had a song do that for me,” he told RNZ. “I’ve learned to cope with love and grief through my own writing process.”
