Broods - Broods Acoustic Set @ Clarence St Theatre, Hamilton - 6/12/16

18 Dec 2016 // A review by Kerry Kingi

Upon arrival to see the Broods there was a huge presence of the Sponsors - iHeartRadio, ZM and 2Degrees. My Fiancé and I were offered a free photo from iHeartRadio and soon after went to the bar and was offered a free Maputo ice cream, which was a nice gift. We sat right at the back, in the centre in front of the mixing desk. A camera guy had a video camera set up on a tripod 2 rows down from us. He didn't have his power cords strapped down very well and people walking to their seats were tripping up on them - it was funny to watch. 

Down on the stage there was two microphone stands, two empty seats and a keyboard. Georgia Nott walked came onto the stage with introductions and chit chat to the audience. She is very humorous, as she tells the audience that the songs she's about to perform are depressing and hopes that everyone has a good time jokingly, the audience erupted with laughter, Georgia was great with the audience. She starts playing the keyboard, the first song her vocal range is diverse and exceptional. The 2nd song was Formals - Georgia joked in-between the songs. The crowd was very full, a sell out gig. The third song starts with the piano, a remix of the Empire of the Sun track We Are The People, a brilliant version too with just a piano and Georgia's voice. 

Caleb Nott then came out with an acoustic guitar, introductions and a quick sound check. He starts with a finger picking folk guitar style song and Georgia's vocals were quite high pitched and, as always, in key and well rehearsed. More jokes in-between songs. They had the crowd in the palm of their hands and they're great entertainers. The acoustic guitar added a strong element to the songs. They did a spine chilling version of Mad World. The next track Caleb described as Broods vs Doobie Brothers and it did have its similarities. This was my favourite track it was uplifting and had fast paced strumming and folk picking guitar by Caleb singing backing vocals and Georgia's voice was amazing, an inspiration to young upcoming artists, this was a dancing track with Georgia playing percussion with a shaker.

Following that track there was a Q and A live interview with the ZM guy, was informative found out that young Georgia had recently married and had recently come back from an US tour. But the Broods are straight up Kiwis, very talented and great entertainers. Highly recommended! After the Q and A they performed one last track, Bridges. A great night out for NZ music.


About Broods

Meet Broods; the brother-sister duo of Georgia and Caleb Nott who hail from Nelson, and are now based in Auckland. It's been whirlwind time for the two who independently released their debut single Bridges to a heated bidding war to sign the group. Broods signed with Capitol Records in the USA, Polydor Records in the UK, and Island Australia & Universal NZ.

Georgia and Caleb started playing together around the age of ten, more recently, playing together as part of (the now defunct) Peasants. The two started spending time with Joel Little in the studio while he was also working on Lorde's Grammy nominated Pure Heroine.

Their song Bridges has clocked over 300,000 plays on Soundcloud, and Hypemachine says they are “pretty much destined for pop success”.
