Spotlight: Broods (06/06/16)

Broods recently unveiled the first single, 'Free', to be taken from their forthcoming second album. The newly emboldened duo of Georgia (lead vocals) and brother Caleb Nott (multi-instrumentalist and producer) have made 2016 their year! In April they hit the road with Ellie Goulding on her US tour and will be releasing their second album 'Conscious' at the end of June and heading out on a huge tour of their own during August. Their previous singles 'Bridges' and 'Mother & Father' gained the sibling duo growing attention and support, and this release is only going to build on that momentum! 

'Free' Review:
As the first taste of Broods' forthcoming album, it leaves the listener excited and wanting more. This song hints at a slightly darker and more intense sound from the duo, however, there are definitely those fantastic synths and catchy lyrics and melodies. Georgia's compelling vocals still stand out and push through the song and there is a more experimental aspect to Caleb's producing, which is exciting to hear. They've moved slightly away from their previous release, but have still created that 'Broods sound' and I'm really looking forward to hearing the rest of their album. If you enjoy the likes of Ellie Goulding, Tove Lo and Troye Sivan, you're bound to love Broods!
