New Music: Broods - Free (Video)
Next on a catch up of new tunes whilst I've been away on holiday is something from New Zealand's Broods.
Georgia and Caleb's debut album Evergreen didn't have a particularly high profile here in the UK but that didn't stop it being one of my most played of 2014. It's mix of melancholy, euphoria, tenderness and sentimentality combined with hooky and memorable songwriting was hard to beat. If there was any concern that Evergreen was a one off, Broods dispel the worries with this. Free is a song that takes the slightly edgier and darker undercurrent of electronic pop that bands like Depeche Mode and Chvrches do and adds Georgia's biggest vocal performance so far to its industrial polish. The video looks a little like something from the Divergent movie series, playing around with virtual reality, and marks a fine return from the duo.
