Sibling duo BROODS debuted in the post-Lorde 2010s with a dark electronic pop sound that helped boost their first album, the chart-topping Evergreen, to international attention upon the strength of the platinum-certified single "Mother & Father." Comprising vocalist Georgia Nott & her elder multi-instrumentalist brother, Caleb Nott, the pair grew up surrounded by music, having played together since they were children. They were in the Peasants, a band that won a competition in 2011. After the Peasants broke up, the siblings formed BROODS & connected with producer Joel Little, who had served as a judge during the contest. In October 2013, BROODS uploaded "Bridges" to SoundCloud & subsequently signed major-label contracts. The following January, "Bridges" was released & reached the Top Ten in NZ. A self-titled six-track EP co-written by the Notts & Little, & produced by Little, was issued at the end of the month. BROODS debuted at number 164 on the Billboard 200. Their debut album, Evergreen, arrived in 2014, topped the NZ chart, & reached number 45 in the U.S. In 2016, the duo and Little returned with "Free," the first single from their sophomore album. Their second NZ chart-topper, Conscious, arrived in the summer of 2016 and featured the Lorde-penned "Heartlines" and a collaboration with Tove Lo. In 2018, they issued the singles "Peach" and "Everything Goes (Wow)." Both tracks were featured on their third LP, Don't Feed the Pop Monster, which arrived in February 2019.
