MTV Review: Broods Captivate At Elektrowerkz, Islington
The brother-sister duo have taken an edgier turn with their latest tunes, but we're loving it nonetheless...
Last night (17th May), brother-sister duo Broods played a one-off live show to a packed crowd at Elektrowerkz in Islington, London.
If you're unfamiliar with them, the New Zealand electro-pop pair are Georgia Nott (lead vocals and multi-instrumentalist) and Caleb Nott (production and backing vocals), and have supported the likes of Haim and Ellie Goulding but are now about to embark on a North American tour to support their forthcoming album 'Conscious'.
Their captivating set was filled with an emotive mix of tracks from their self-titled 2014 EP, their debut album ‘Evergreen’ and their forthcoming sophomore LP, which is set to drop on June 24th.
Throughout the show, as Georgia’s sultry vocals weaved through each song supported by Caleb’s, it was apparent that that they’ve made a conscious effort to develop their sound from something more subtle to one that’s darker and edgier than their previous material.
Due to a technical difficulty with Caleb’s keyboard, we were treated to a stripped down version of ‘Bridges’ with only Georgia and her keyboard – her fragile vocal performance easily made this the highlight of the night.
Unfortunately there wasn’t an encore, but the crowd were more than satisfied with the band's ability to get us all up in our feelings and swaying our hips at the same time. And with the successes of the likes of Ellie Goulding and CHVRCHES, we’ll be hearing a lot more from Broods very soon.
