Thursday night was a trip to Eaton’s Hill Hotel for the Brisbane leg of brother and sister (Caleb and Georgia Nott) Duo Broods for their Australian tour to celebrate the release of their new album ‘Don’t Feed the Pop Monster’.
Opening the night was L.A duo Moby Rich. These guys are still relatively new in the music world with their first EP, ‘Our First Ep’ released just last year. But with their melodic tones and harmonies showing off impeccable talent they have a great future ahead of them. I am still blown away by how amazing their voices are. Keep at it guys, I’ll be keeping my eyes on you!
The room was a buzz as we awaited New Zealand’s Broods and when the lights went down we were in for a treat. Dark and moody, the band members appeared on the stage as silhouettes with lead singer Georgia instantly captivating in her dance moves. The set opened with Sucker, the first track off their new album. It’s clear this is an introduction to their bigger new sound while still sticking to their roots of Electro Pop. The new album is thicker with lyrics and performing them live you get to appreciate just how incredible Georgia’s vocals are. She has pitch and tone control that reminds me of a young Tori Amos.
I could listen to her all day. Georgia’s vocals accompanied by the talented musicians on stage Take you on a journey that has you swinging your hips and dancing the night away and you Are just hoping it doesn’t end too soon. And it didn’t. The set runs through songs from all 3 albums with highlights like ‘Too Proud’ where we see Caleb take the lead on vocals and ‘Hospitalized’ has the crowd singing loudly over the music. The set closed out with the popular ‘Peach’ before an encore performance of ‘Couldn’t believe’.
When the house lights came on you could see the smiles on everyone’s ones faces showing just how much fun was had by all. I loved that this was an all ages gig and I’m sure the first live music experience for some ticket holders who looked even more excited when it was over them they did waiting for it to start. What a great memory they get to take away! Broods live is an experience every fan will enjoy and I look forward to seeing them again on future tours.
