Get a Jump Start On Liking Young NZ Brother-Sister Duo Broods

Might as well go ahead and get familiar with Broods now, because I suspect we’ll hear from them a few more hundred times over the next year. They’ve got the right hemispherical provenance (New Zealand), the right facial structure proportions (symmetrical), the right backstory hook (brother-sister), the right cumulative temporal existence on earth (21 and 19), the right producer (Lorde producer Joel Little), the right sound (broody piano mood pop), and the right backers (Capitol Records), to ensure that they pop up in the right commercials and music festivals and blogs (like this one!) for the foreseeable future. It doesn’t hurt that their songs “Bridges” and the newly released “Never Gonna Change” are actually pretty good, but don’t hold that against them.
