Broods Mix New Songs and Old, Acoustic and Electric, Black and White at Show in Chicago

Broods, a brother-sister led band from New Zealand, returned to Chicago this week for a packed show at Metro. Performing a mix of songs from their two albums, 2014’s Evergreen and June’s Conscious, the band found a balance between upbeat, synth-heavy cuts and more mellow, melodic songs.

Jarryd James opened the show with a set that included a cover of the Broods song “1000x.” He was joined on stage by Broods’ Georgia Nott, naturally setting the crowd into a wild flurry of applause. When Georgia reappeared on stage not too much later, it was with her brother for their headlining set. The duo started the show in all black outfits, but changed into white attire after a short acoustic bit of the set near the middle. In addition to a dramatic attire change of color, the bands light show was very dynamic and often tinted to colors that seemed to match the mood of the songs.

Georgia spent a majority of the time dancing around the stage and pumping up the crowd, while her brother Caleb switched between bass, guitar and keyboard. Both had great energy on stage, which clearly spilled over into the crowd and encouraged them to dance as well.

A highlight of the set was “Heartlines,” a song that received buzz a few weeks ago because it was co-written by fellow New Zealander Lorde. The bubbly, poppy dance track references midnight car rides with a dark bass-line evocative of some of Lorde’s other songs. “Couldn’t Believe” closed the set, but it was “Bridges” that received the most excitement, with screams starting within the first few recognizable bars.

Broods’ new music and tickets for the remaining dates of their tour can be found at broodsmusic.com.
