Earlier this month, we caught up with sibling duo BROODS at The Meadows Festival in Queens, New York. Despite their slightly dark and edgy indie pop sound, Georgia and Caleb Nott were probably the most charming and giggly people I'd encountered that entire weekend. During our chat, I asked the New Zealand pair about what it was like to work with Lorde collaborator Joel Little on their latest album Conscious, festival fashion, and their musical influences (Georgia may have even asked Rihanna to come to her birthday party, which we must make happen). Read the full interview and experience the two's undeniable charisma.
Broods is a music duo from Nelson, New Zealand, composed of Georgia Nott on lead vocals, with older brother and multi-instrumentalist Caleb Nott on production and backing vocals. They released the single "Bridges", which went to No. 8 on the New Zealand single chart, and signed with Capitol and Polydor Records. They released their self-titled debut EP, Broods, on 30 January 2014, which was followed by a full-length album, Evergreen, on 22 August 2014. The band toured with Ellie Goulding, Haim, and Sam Smith, and have won five New Zealand Music Awards. They released their second album, Conscious, on 24 June 2016.
