EDITORS’ NOTES

While writing their third album, New Zealand brother-sister pop duo Broods had one rule: Don’t say no. In other words, be willing to experiment, to explore, and be true to themselves as artists. The attitude can be felt in everything from the album's title to its lyrics. In the glitchy opener “Sucker”, Georgia Nott sings, “Almost lost myself just trying to be like somebody else,” and in the defiant electroclash of “Old Dog”, she rails, “I’m not here just to please/Get that leash off me.” While you can still hear their trademark moody synth-pop on songs like “Falling Apart,” the joyful piano stabs of “Peach,” the shimmering synths of “Hospitalized” and the pure-pop refrain of “Everything Goes (Wow)” speak of a band happily charting their own destiny.

Deeper than it looks....

The more you dive into this pop album the further it pulls you in. I appreciate Broods for making a pop album with substance in an era of music often far too dark or far too shallow. They've struck a balance all whilst showing a maturity and evolution in their sound. I liked their earlier work, but now, I'm a loyal fan.
