Heartlake took home the coveted Judge's Choice award of the Northern Composure 2019 band competition.

The annual event for unsigned local youth bands was held at the Northern Beaches PCYC in Dee Why.

Heartlake drummer Giacomo Benvenuto said it was a "momentous occasion" for the band, who also won the Audience Choice gong in 2017 and 2018. "We are aiming to release a single this year, so this (win) will definately help," he said. "To see people enjoying our music and to be formally recognised by other people in the (music) industry was great."
