Naturally, when New Zealand duo Broods tell us to download their latest single ‘Free’ on iTunes, they’re not saying that ‘Free’ is free. It’s not.
What ‘Free’ is, however, is a dark and delicious, moody pop number with a pulsing electronic beat thanks to Caleb Nott with a soft and sweet, floating vocal over the top, thanks to his younger sister Georgia.
“I didn’t want to just be up there singing about love,” Georgia says in a statement. “I wanted to talk about other things – things that people might really be going through, the kinds of things you face when it’s not just about being a kid anymore and having fun. I wanted to make great pop songs that also feel just a little more mature.”
And this classy video, which sees a captive Georgia trapped in a world of warped, alternate realities, gives us every indication that Broods and more than ready, willing and able to take the world by storm.
