Enter to win Evergreen from Broods!
With new releases from Paloma Faith, Betty Who, Tinashe, Hozier, and Gorgon City (to name a few), it’s safe to say that THIS PAST #NewMusicTuesday (October 7th) was one of the biggest of the year so far, in terms of high-profile major label releases. Another band who released a highly anticipated album, New Zealand brother/sister duo BROODS who’s Capitol Records debut Evergreen came out on Tuesday. Fresh off a SOLD OUT U.S. tour opening for Sam Smith, BROODS announced a couple of headlining shows around America to promote the release of their STUNNER of a debut album.
Current single (and one of my favorites on the album), “Mother & Father” has earned international praise as it continues to gain momentum here in the States. The Fader described the song as “elegant pop” while Idolator calls the tune”nothing short of an emotional triumph.” The video (BELOW) already has racked up 700,000 plays on YouTube and over 4.5 million plays on Spotify on top of the daily gains the song is making on alternative radio. I think it’s safe to call BROODS one of 2014’s burgeoning and very bright stars.
Evergreen, BROODS‘ first full length effort was produced by Grammy-award winning producer Joel Little (Lorde, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Elliphant) in the band’s home country of New Zealand. Pick it up on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Spotify. Fancy owning Evergreen on vinyl? Well it can be yours December 2nd (pre-order HERE). Check out a live performance of “Four Walls,” a track taken from Evergreen BELOW.
