I don’t know about you all, but for me this summer has been all about the atmospheric, nostalgia-tinged jams of brother/sister duo BROODS — they pen the perfect jams for top-down night-driving and loose-limbed dance parties alike. They also, apparently, write tunes pretty suitable for weeping.
MTV News sat down with BROODS, before they hit “Late Night With Seth Meyers” Wednesday (July 16), and talked their upcoming debut LP Evergreen, out August 22. The record was produced by fellow New Zealander Joel Little — who also works with Lorde (a.k.a. BROODS’ biggest fan).
Amid the expected brother/sister bickering (Caleb Nott thinks his sister Georgia rambles a bit, she disagrees), Georgia revealed to us the most emotional track on the record, one the general public hasn’t heard yet titled “Medicine.” (I’ve heard it and she ain’t lying. Tears.)
“It’s probably one of the most depressing songs you’ll ever hear,” Caleb said, while Georgia added, “It’s a very straight-up ‘this is how I feel’ song and it’s a bit too honest to play in front of people.”
Yikes. Quite the contrast to the recently released single “L.A.F,” which Georgia described to us as “a friend group-type looking out for each other kind of song.”
Although it’s a bummer that we won’t be hearing that jam live anytime soon, the siblings have plenty of songs locked and loaded for when they head out on tour this fall with Sam Smith.
