"Evergreen" by Broods on iTunes

11 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Of the countless popsmiths who aspire to follow in Lorde's footsteps, Broods have a pretty good shot: the brother-sister duo of Caleb and Georgia Nott are also from New Zealand, and they share the "Royals" singer's producer, Joel Little. Comprised of tempestuous pop with electronic flourishes, their debut shows a resemblance to their countrywoman's music but distinguishes itself, too: the single "Bridges" pulses with alt-R&B wooziness, and "Four Walls" is futuristic quiet storm. With Georgia's layered vocals and the swirling synths throughout, Evergreen is a bumpy ride, throbbing with urgent energy, like Portishead by way of Destiny's Child.

Melandjfan,

I pre ordered this the other night. At the very least I need the reduced price and credit for the 4 tracks I own. I kind of feel entitled to it. Thanks.

finally

Sahewdg,

ive been waiting for them to finally get a full album from them for a while, i truly love the sound and their much more then just a pop duo. the music they create speaks to anyone and its simple with so much hidden deeper in the lyrics. i would recommend this to anyone looking for something real and fresh.

About Broods

Vocalist Georgia Nott and her older multi-instrumentalist brother Caleb Nott are Broods, a cleverly and descriptively named electronic pop duo from Auckland, New Zealand. The Notts, who grew up surrounded by music, have played together since they were children. They were in the Peasants, a band that won a competition for intermediate (junior high) and high school musical acts in 2011. After the Peasants broke up, the siblings formed Broods and connected with producer Joel Little, who had served as a judge during the contest. In October 2013, months after Little gained recognition for his work with another Auckland native Lorde, Broods uploaded "Bridges" to their Soundcloud page and subsequently signed major-label contracts for various territories. The following January, "Bridges" was released commercially and reached the Top Ten in New Zealand. A self-titled six-track EP co-written by the Notts and Little, and produced by Little, was issued at the end of the month. In New Zealand, the moody set debuted at number two, just beneath Lorde's Pure Heroine. Released in the U.S. the following month -- less than a week after Lorde's "Royals" won a Grammy for Song of the Year -- Broods debuted at number 164 on the Billboard 200. Their debut album, Evergreen, arrived in September 2014, topped the New Zealand chart, and reached number 45 in the U.S. In April 2016, the duo and Little returned with "Free," the first single from the second Broods album. It also preceded a series of U.S. tour dates in support of Ellie Goulding. Their sophomore set, Conscious, arrived in the summer of 2016, featuring the Lorde-penned "Heartlines" and a collaboration with Tove Lo. ~ Andy Kellman
