BROODS have returned, but probably not in the way you were expecting.
The brother-sister pop duo – made up of Caleb and Georgia Nott – have made some changes in the two years since releasing their sophomore LP Conscious, which brought us electro-pop gems like “Heartlines” and “Free.” The Nott‘s have moved from their native New Zealand to Los Angeles, parted ways with Capitol Records (signing recently to Neon Gold / Atlantic) and have since put out solo projects – Georgia with her feminism-focused The Venus Project album, and Caleb with his new moniker Fizzy Milk (“Make Me Feel“).
All of these shifts have lead us to their splashy new single “Peach,” the first from the duo’s upcoming third album, expected in 2019.
“As artists, you feel things at a much more extreme level than people who probably don’t spend most of their time inside their own heads,” Broods said in a statement. “‘Peach‘ is about feeling all over the place all the time, and then celebrating those moments when everything feels awesome. We’ve worked so hard on this new music and can’t wait to finally share it with our amazing and patient fans.”
Co-written in Nashville with BØRNS and Kacey Musgraves collaborator Tommy English, “Peach” sees the duo working through some crashing drums, glittering ’80s-leaning synth textures… and an earworm of a child-led chant just for good measure. “I’m high and I’m low, no control/ But everything’s looking peach/ I’m high and I’m low, no control/ But everything’s looking peach now…“
It’s nice a change of pace for the duo who tend to lean more on the BROODing side of things. I’m 100% here for the “Peach.”!
