Music / Announce
With their third album ready for release, Broods have announced they'll return home to New Zealand in March for a run of shows to celebrate.
Nelson-bred, LA-based duo Broods will return back to home soil this March in celebration of their new album, Don’t Feed The Pop Monster.
The album is set for release on Friday February 1, and will feature their latest single Hospitalized, as well as previous singles Peach and Everything Goes (Wow).
After exploring separate solo projects throughout 2018, Broods frontwoman, Georgia Nott says that the album sees the brother/sister duo returning to their roots and embracing their purest instincts after years of navigating the pop landscape. “[We wanted to] make songs that were true to us, without hiding behind any kind of facade.
“Instead of overthinking everything like, ‘Is that too weird?’ or ‘Does this make enough sense?’ we made a point of completely trusting in ourselves and trusting in each other,” she says.
Alongside her brother Caleb, Broods had their breakthrough in 2014 thanks to single Bridges. The track featured on their Joel Little-produced debut album Evergreen, which debuted at #1 on the New Zealand album chart and #5 over in Australia. The record also saw Broods win four prizes at the 2015 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards including Album of the Year.
On their new album, Don’t Feed The Pop Monster, they’ve reunited with Little to create a record that they’re describing as ethereal and euphoric.
