On their win, The Last Dinner party said: "We are so proud beyond measure to have won the BRITs Rising Star. It’s an honour to achieve something so iconic so early on in our career and we can only hope to keep making music that connects with all the incredible people who have listened to and supported us so far. Thank you!"

Following their first-ever performance at London's The George in 2021, the group were quickly snapped-up by Island Records as they signed a major label deal.
