After taking a little break, I'm back to review breakout synth-pop group Broods.
Lead single “Bridges” has me picturing looking down at Miami at night, basking in the glow of the street lights and the pulse of the never-ending traffic. Produced by Joel Little, who produced Lorde’s “Royals”, “Bridges” is top-notch, with pulsating synths complemented with a moody piano in between, mastering the “less-is-more” approach.
“Coattails”, my personal favorite, has the methodic rhythm reminding me of the plodding of the drums in DJ Shadow’s “Midnight Request Line” but with Georgia’s voice clear and present, talented enough to challenge the vocalists of CHVRCHES and Purity Ring. And the rest of the EP is fantastic, deserving to be played on repeat. They have just been added to WVUM’s rotation, so keep it locked to the voice, Broods should be seeing heavy airplay for some months from now.
