We’ve got a concert update to report coming to Metro Vancouver next year. New Zealand’s indie electronica pop duo, Broods, is coming to the Vogue Theatre. It was recently announced that the Kiwi twosome, comprised of siblings Georgia and Caleb Nott, will be coming to the 604 on Tuesday, April the 2nd – marking the third time they’ve come to our city. The North American tour starts on March the 26th in Santa Ana, California, and this is there only stop in Western Canada, with Toronto and Montreal being the only other two Canadian cities. The tour coincides with the release of their new album, “Don’t Feed the Pop Monster,” which is set to be available February 1st. In anticipation for the new album, the band has released two new singles from it, “Peach” and “Everything Goes (Wow).”
For a quick background, the duo has released two albums, both hitting the top spot on New Zealand’s Album Chart and reaching the top 5 on Australia’s ARIA Chart – 2014’s “Evergreen” and 2016’s “Conscious.” Now while the two have been performing together ever since they were young (I mean obviously – they’re siblings), the band didn’t “officially” form until 2013 in Auckland while working with music producer Joel Little – who, at the time, was responsible for co-writing and producing many of Lorde’s hits from her album “Heroine,” including “Tennis Court,” “Team,” and “Royals.”
They got their first break in 2014, with the drop of their self-titled EP, which peaked at the number two spot in New Zealand. The EP consisted of singles like “Never Gonna Change” and “Bridges” – the later of which shot up to number 8 on the New Zealand Music Charts. They followed that up the same year with “Evergreen,” which included the previous singles, as well as their hit “Mother & Father” and “Four Walls.”
They followed that success up with “Conscious” two years later, which included the hits “Heartlines,” and “Free” – my personal favourite song of theirs (and dare I say perhaps one of my all-time favourite songs in general). The album also includes collaborations with Tove Lo and Lorde.
During their almost six years as a band, they’ve worked and toured with such A-List artists, including Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Troye Sivan, HAIM, and a budding singer-songwriter by the name of… Taylor Swift (I think I spelt that right).
Now back to the Vancouver show, the concert is expected to also feature special guests, however as of now no acts have been confirmed. Tickets for this concert go on sale this Friday (December 7th) at 10am. To buy tickets for the event, click here. See you there.
