Keeping up with Broods
Life is moving fast for Nelson sibling duo Broods, Georgia, 21, and Caleb Nott, 23, whose popularity seems to be gaining momentum daily. Recently, they’ve been selling out headlining tours and sharing stages with the likes of industry heavyweights Ellie Goulding, Haim and Sam Smith.
Techonology news and information site Digital Trends caught up with Georgia as Broods prepare to release their sophomore album, Conscious, later this year.
Few artists have the opportunity to work with Top 40 producers so early on in their career, but an inside connection gives Broods an advantage. Their producer, Joel Little, happens to be an old friend, and with him comes production credits including Lorde, Smith, and Goulding.
Broods recently added co-writing to their list of musical credits, partnering with Australian artist and YouTuber, Troye Sivan, to co-write tracks for his debut album. Like many digital introductions among artists today, the three met via Twitter.
With all these changes, collaborations, and new touring opportunities, what can listeners expect from Broods’ forthcoming album?
“I think the main thing is that it’s heavier,” Georgia claims. “A lot more than the first one. I think the first album was a bit more minimal. Caleb especially really found himself as a producer as we got into writing this new album.”
With their well-received freshman effort, the EP, Bridges, under their belt, Georgia is more excited than ever before to perform the songs from their forthcoming album and explore the where they can really evolve: on stage. “We had live shows in mind a lot more when we were writing this album. We wanted to create all the tracks to be this amazing experience we could recreate live. I’m more excited about playing this new album than I have to play anything. It’s exciting to move on to this new project with this new record.”
