Broods – Mother & Father

Broods are Auckland brother and sister duo, Caleb and Georgia Nott. They played their first British dates in March with a sold-out show at London’s New Shapes night, followed by four support slots across the UK with HAIM. These dates were followed by a sell-out tour of the US. The new single follows quickly in the widespread support for the BROODS EP, and sees this hotly-tipped young band continue their collaborations with acclaimed producer Joel Little (Lorde). Vocalist Georgia Nott and her older multi-instrumentalist brother Caleb Nott are Broods, a cleverly and descriptively named electronic pop duo from Auckland, New Zealand. The Notts, who grew up surrounded by music, have played together since they were children. They were in the Peasants, a band that won a competition for intermediate (junior high) and high school musical acts in 2011. After the Peasants broke up, the siblings formed Broods and connected with producer Joel Little, who had served as a judge during the contest. In October 2013, months after Little gained recognition for his work with Auckland native Lorde, Broods uploaded “Bridges” to their Soundcloud page and subsequently signed major-label contracts for various territories. The following January, “Bridges” was released commercially and reached the Top Ten in New Zealand. A self-titled six-track EP co-written by the Notts and Little, and produced by Little, was issued at the end of the month. In New Zealand, the moody set debuted at number two, just beneath Lorde’s Pure Heroine. Released in the U.S. the following month — less than a week after Lorde’s “Royals” won a Grammy for Song of the Year — Broods debuted at number 164 on the Billboard 200.

Broods – Mother & Father

Broods Mother And Father is the official lead single from the New Zealand duo’s full-length debut album to be released under Capitol Records. ‘Mother and Father’ features a heavy-drum production and ethereal vocals by Georgia Nott.

Broods – Mother & Father Lyrics:
The nights are getting shorter
I don’t know where to go
I am getting older
And I’m starting to show
And ever since I left my mother
It’s much harder to know
How to make my own life here
How to make my own home

I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
Forget what I have in mind

I remember the time when a kiss on the hand was enough
Cause we know we were feeling
What it meant to be love
But ever since I left my father
It’s much harder to know
How to make my own life here
How to make my own home

I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
Forget what I have in mind

This face’s starting to fade
They’re slipping through my hands
It’s where my heart was made
And where people always land

I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
I don’t want to wake up lonely
I don’t want to just be fine
I don’t want to keep on hoping
Forget what I have in mind
Forget what I have in mind.
