We first met New Zealand’s brother-sister duo Georgia and Caleb Nott, aka Broods with their dark, ethereal single “Bridges” last winter. Following up “Bridges” and “Mothers & Father,” Broods have finally dropped their debut album Evergreen. The highly anticipated full-length was produced by Grammy-award winning producer Joel Little (Lorde,Ellie Goulding, Elliphant) in New Zealand and was released via Capitol Records.
OCT 21, 2014 UPDATE: Having just completed their sold-out U.S. tour supporting UK soul artist Sam Smith, the New Zealand duo headed south to Austin City Limits, performing alongside headliners Beck, Capital Cities, and more. Evergreen is the second highest debut on the CMJ charts this week.
In addition to the release of Evergreen, the band has also been nominated for three awards at this year’s Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards: Single of the Year, “Bridges”; Breakthrough Artist of the Year; and the People’s Choice Award. The pair will perform at the award ceremony on November 20 in New Zealand.
To punctuate the wrap of their successful tour, and to celebrate the official release of Evergreen, Broods played a massive headline show to a sold-out house at the El Rey theatre in Los Angeles Monday, October 13, 2014. Mid-concert the crowd showed their support for the new LP by posing for a photo with the duo while donning the cover-art for Evergreen, which was inspired by wolf masks.
