But being in a band with your sibling can’t be easy.
Yet the New Zealand brother-sister combo Broods – consisting of Georgia and Caleb Nott – makes such a pairing look and sound flawless.
Broods continued their ‘Evergreen’ headlining tour this Sunday at The Masquerade in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a more captivating, beautiful show on any Sunday night.
Swedish pop singer Erik Hassle opened the show, bringing the best of his album’s ‘We Dance’ and ‘Pieces.’ While he had a few devoted fans in the audience in the beginning, Hassle completely won over the crowd with his fun dance moves and chill stage presence.
But it was Brood’s dynamic harmonies and Georgia’s haunting vocals that stole the night. Caleb brought a new and engaging sound to his instrumental performance during hits off their EP, including ‘Bridges’ and ‘Never Gonna Change.’ Fan favorites from the night included ‘Four Walls’ and an encore performance of ‘Mother & Father.’
The Atlanta show ended a personal and endearing note, as Georgia pulled out her phone in order to record an audience sing-along Happy Birthday message for her mother back in New Zealand.
Caleb and Georgia Nott, age 22 and 20 respectively, only released their first full-length album in August 2014. Since then, the sibling-duo has toured with Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith, while snagging contracts with Polydor Records and working with legendary producer Joel Little.
After their stint in Atlanta, Broods are off to continue their North American tour, which will include a stop at July’s Lollapalooza in Chicago.
With peerless vocals and sweet yet hauntingly honest lyrics, this young band is primed to continue their breakout success in the coming months. If you missed their Atlanta concert, be sure to check them out on Twitter and Instagram (@broodsmusic) to check out where they will be next.
