Broods is a brother/sister music group from New Zealand. Georgia Nott is the lead singer and her older brother Caleb Nott does instrumentals and back up singing. I think they have a nice sound. I like Georgia's voice, but mostly I like the group for their lyrics as much as their sound.
I have heard Georgia in an interview on a radio station before and she seems very down to earth and easy going. It's hard to really "know" anyone from small snippets of an interview, but I got the impression that early fame has not gotten to her or her brothers heads. Hopefully they'll be able to enjoy continued success and keep that same down to earth and humble nature.
One of Broods first songs to get radio play here on Alternative radio in the United States is Bridges
Another of their songs which I enjoy listening to very much is Mother and Father. I have a soft spot for songs that are about family, and Mother and Father relates nicely to the difficulties many of us face when we leave the safety and comfort of our family and try to make a life away from them.
As Broods is still a very new group it will be interesting to follow their path. Will they have sustained success? Will their spotlight be brief? I certainly believe Caleb and Georgia possess the talent to have a long successful career with a devoted following. I have not yet heard a song where Caleb's vocals are featured, and I think it would be cool if they choose to do that at some point. I always like when bands push the envelope a little on their "sound" and try new things. Those experiments sometimes alienate loyal fans, but I think that mostly happens when a band has already been around a long time and wants to explore a new sound. Broods is still new enough to dabble in that without hurting their burgeoning fan base I think? Even though I suppose when a group is just beginning to have success they might want to stick with what they know works for a bit before changing things up.
