While we’re busy focusing on the many up and coming names from the ever-increasing British music scene, there’s a whole new world of talent to be discovered and they come from the other side of the globe. Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, BROODS are looking to send the music scene into euphoria with their harmonious, new pop flavour. The brother-sister duo of Caleb and Georgia Nott are creating a stir on the internet with their first release ‘Bridges’ reaching an amazing 200,000 hits on SoundCloud. Being an independent duo at the release of this track, they were soon at the hands of many labels begging to sign them. Landing a sweet deal with Polydor Records in the UK and Capitol Records in the US, they are now set to release their first EP early next year.
You might be thinking it would be too much of a coincidence for these lovely Kiwis to have worked alongside the same producer that fellow New Zealander Lorde worked with on her astonishing debut album Pure Heroine… well you would be wrong! Joel Little is the name of the musical mastermind that helped Lorde’s album reach Grammy nomination status and he has definitely put in the studio time with Caleb to create a gentle yet vivacious backdrop to Georgia’s angelic, breathy tones. BROODS are definitely the ones to watch for 2014!
