BROODS - "MOTHER AND FATHER" (ELECTRO-POP, NEW ZEALAND)
The sibling ensemble of Georgia and Caleb have been very busy of late: festivals, gigs, support slots aplenty. Everything is on the up for the two from New Zealand and deservedly so. We first blogged about the smouldering BROODS back in February this year after their phenomenal jaunt "Bridges" bubbled up onto the internet and received notable plaudits. Now the pair have "Mother And Father" ready.
The Auckland outfit have teamed up with producer Joel Little, better known for working with teenage prodigy and fellow Kiwi Lorde to create a slow-whomp electronic monster. Steadfast beats give an unspoken sense of solidarity and forward motion as Georgia's heavenly vocals effervesce and permeate the instrumental foundations laid down by brother Caleb. Each chorus is an enchanting melange of sound as synths pulsate and keys trickle across the soundboard. Keep Shelley In Athens in places, Purity Ring in others. BROODS through and through; another excellent lead that promises much from the duo's debut album "Evergreen".
Check out the Soundcloud for "Mother And Father" and be sure to download debut album "Evergreen" upon its release. Like this review? Share, re-tweet, re-post.
