The Kiwi’s are really making 2013/2014 their time to shine what with resident Lorde dominating the world with her debut, and now here comes brother and sister duo Caleb and Georgia otherwise known as Broods. Broods have already been having a big year with their self titled EP and the track “Bridges” gaining considerable airplay here in Australia as well as supporting Ellie Goulding and being named on the Splendour In The Grass line up Broods are gearing up for a debut album and the track “Mother & Father” is leading the charge.
The tracks get your attention from the start with the “boom – clap – boom – boom – clap” of a tribal drum exploding from the get go. The track is filled with low cries, etherial synths progressions and a synth based beat which trails throughout the track. The track is darkly menacing but still has this sweet outer body feeling to the song.
Georgia sings “I don’t wake up lonely / I don’t wanna just be fine / I don’t wanna keep on hoping / Forget what I had in mind” throughout the chorus and the bridge is something that will give you deep feels, “His face will start to fade / they’re slipping through my hands“. The song will give you some seriously feels and make you want to go home and give your Mother and Father a massive hug.
Have a listen to the Studio version and the Live Version below as performed at Hordern Pavilion supporting Ellie Goudling this year.
Broods will be performing a series of shows whilst in Australia for Splendour In The Grass and I suggest you definitely make your way down to catch them.
