Broods – Don't Feed The Pop Monster

Broods – Don't Feed The Pop Monster

Los Angeles-based but Nelson-bred indie-pop duo Broods are back onstage, bringing their highly-anticipated 'Don't Feed The Pop Monster' tour to Christchurch and Auckland this May.

Born into an exceptionally musical family, Georgia and Caleb Nott had their career breakthrough as Broods after the release of their 2014 hit single 'Bridges'. The track appeared on their Joel Little-produced full-length album 'Evergreen'—an album that debuted at #1 on the New Zealand Albums Chart and #5 on the Australian Albums Chart.

With 'Evergreen' winning four prizes at the 2015 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards (including Album of the Year), Broods released 'Conscious' in June 2016 and soon saw lead single 'Free' hit the top 10 on Spotify's US Viral Chart. 'Conscious' went on to win five New Zealand Music Awards (including Album of the Year, back-to-back Album of the Year awards for Broods).

After years of navigating the pop landscape, Broods returned to the fold in 2018 with an all-new music. They wanted to get back to embracing their purest instincts and "make songs that were true to us, without hiding behind any kind of facade," says frontwoman, Georgia Nott.

"Instead of overthinking everything like, is that too weird? Or, does this make enough sense?, We made a point of just completely trusting in ourselves and trusting in each other." - Goergia Nott, Broods

On the new album 'Don't Feed The Pop Monster', Broods have reunited with their long-time producer Joel Little (Khalid, Lorde, Imagine Dragons) and have enlisted award-winning producer Tommy English (BØRNS, K.Flay). At turns ethereal and frantic, moody and euphoric, the result is an album that's elegantly sculpted yet defies all pop convention. Its first two singles 'Peach' and 'Everything Goes (Wow)' were met with critical acclaim ('Peach' has had more than 15 million streams). The duo followed it up with their latest single 'Hospitalized'—a bright and shimmering track about longing for a break from emotional accountability.

"…this album is by far their greatest achievement. It's fun, bursting with life, sounds unlike anything else circling the highly saturated pop sphere right now…" – stuff.co.nz

Most recently, Taylor Swift personally invited Broods to join her 'Reputation' Stadium tour across Australia & NZ. Apart from this, the duo have also supported Sam Smith on a sold-out US tour, have played leading festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Outside Lands and have shared stages with artists like Ellie Goulding, Haim, and Chuvrches.
