BROODS - Space Island Tour w/ Ella Vos

    BROODS

    Electronic Pop

    The fourth full-length from BROODS, Space Islandis an exploration of grief and all itsmany dimensions: itsunpredictablenatureandrefusal to follow any linearpath, its incrediblecapacityto bringgreatclarity and transformation. Inkeeping with the New Zealand-bred duo’s unfettered imagination—an element they’ve brought to multiple platinum-and gold-certified records so far—the album’s 10 tracks exist in a surprisingly radiantsonic realm, its aesthetic equally inspired by ’60ssci-fi B-movies and the balmyexotica of composers like Les Baxter.As a result, Space Island introducesa dazzlingnew intensityinto BROODS’ atmosphericindie-pop while providinga powerfulconduit for catharsis. The most high-concept outputyet from BROODS—a ten-time New Zealand Music Award-winning act who’ve amassed over a billion streams to date, collaborated with Lorde and Tove Lo, toured with HAIM and Taylor Swift, and taken the stage at majorfestivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza—Space Islandcame to lifeduring a period of seriousupheaval for lead vocalist Georgia Nott.Having married at the age of 21, shewent through a difficult divorcesoon after the release of BROODS’ previousalbum Don’t Feed the Pop Monster(a 2019 effort that led to appearances on“Late Night with Seth Meyers” and“The Late Late Show with James Corden”). As Georgiaturned to songwriting as a means of processing her grief, she and her brother/bandmate Caleb Nott discovered an unlikelybut whollyfittingvessel for that emotional outpouring.“One thing about the experience of grief is that it makes you feel like you’re a bit out of orbit,or isolated in a very big feeling,” says Georgia. “Themore we figured out the strange logic of Space Island, the more the musicstarted to reflect what was happening in the lyrics.”In sculptingthe forward-thinking yet nostalgicsoundof Space Island, BROODS mostly worked on their ownin their home studio, occasionally joining forces with friends/producerslike Leroy Clampitt (Ashe, FLETCHER) and Stint (Santigold, Carly Rae Jepsen). Crystallizedina gorgeousconstellationof sonic details—otherworldlybeats, swooningguitar tones, effervescentsynthlines—the album emergedfrom a periodof unbridled experimentation that involved abundantuse of Caleb’s newly purchased Farfisa organ. “I bought it just for the album,” he points out. “It sounds just like a ’60s Italian race car;right awayit just shoots you off into space.” Thanks to that free-flowingapproach, Space Islandbearsa kinetic energythat BROODS viewas crucialto its impact. “The aim was to make thisalbum a very visceral experience,” says Georgia. “When you’re in that grief process, your whole body is in it—the feeling is so much deeper and more ambiguous than anything that can be explained in wordsalone.”Referring to Space Island as a “safe place you retreat to and go inward, exploringthe cosmos of yourself,” Georgia also found that the album’s conceit allowed for a more subtlearticulationof her most complicatedemotions. “Fantasy is a nice thing to lean on when you’re talking about something quite heavy, because it helps you to get really vulnerable without havingto give everyone a literal play-by-play of what you’ve been through,” she says. To that end, songs like “Heartbreak”embodya certainenchanted quality, even as they delve intocomplex subject matter.“When we wrote ‘Heartbreak,’ I was flustered because Iwasn’t constantly moving forward in the grieving of my
     
    relationship,” says Georgia. “The song ended up being a little mantra to let myself fall apart, because that’s an essential part of metabolizingyour grief.” With its serpentinegrooves, shimmering textures,and synths that conjure a bit ofspace-age psychedelia, “Heartbreak” fullyepitomizes the prismaticmusicalityat the heart of Space Island. “We really wanted to create wall-of-sound kind of feelingwith that one,” notes Caleb, naming such playfully inventiveartists asDanger Mouse and Gorillaz among his key touchstones in the album’s production. One of the most grippingmoments on Space Island, “Like a Woman” encompassesa wildlyshapeshiftingsound. After opening on a suddenburst of harmony, the track retreats into desolate stillnessbefore building to a gorgeously explosive bridge. Meanwhile, Georgia’s voice driftsfrom tenderto soulfulto impossiblyfragilein its potentexpression of the painof being undermined. “To me that song very much reflects what it feels like to talk about things that have hurt you,” she says. “You might start off like, ‘I think I’m all right. Although it did hurt. It hurt a lot, actually. I mean, yeah—it really fucking hurt.’ Or at least that’s how I tend to talk about these things.”With Caleb describingSpace Island“an abstract form of Georgia’s diary,”BROODS examineeverything from anger to sorrowto self-discovery, framingeach emotional statein a fantasticallyunexpected musical setting. In a particularly brilliant move, “Gaslight” unfoldsas one of the album’s mostdelicate and dreamysongseven as its lyrics closely document the tormentof self-betrayal and toxic manipulation.On “I Keep,” the duo’s longtime collaborator Tove Lo joins in for an unsparing piece of self-reflectionwhose luminousvocal workinduces a sort ofhypnosis. “I wrote that song thinking about how I’m like a moth that flies into the same porch lamp and dies the exact same way every night, then comes back to life and just does the same thing over and over,” says Georgia. “I told Toveabout itand she said, ‘I know just what you mean,’ which I knew she would. It’s kindof a pattern with us that we always end up writing about mental health together.” And on “If You Fall in Love,” Space Islandcloses out withits most upbeat track, a dance-readyreverie lit up in lushslide guitar and brightly throbbingbeats. “That’s theacceptance song, really—it’s the moment of saying, ‘Here I am, here’s what I’ve learned about myself,’” Georgia reveals. “I love how it feels like lifting up into some weird other dimension.”In bringing Space Islandto life, BROODS conceptualizedan entire visual world for the album, including a series of B-movie-inspired videos shot on 35mm and 16mm as they journeyed through their homeland. “It felt like we were living inside that world as we buildingit, and now we can’t wait to expand it even further with the live shows,” says Georgia. And bydreaming upsuch animmersive body of work, BROODS have ultimately created something of a charmed haven for all those who need healing. “For me this album captures a time when I really leaned onmusic to help myself understand what was happening in my brain and my body and my heart,” says Georgia. “What’s so exciting about sharing it is the idea of someone else using it as a tool to process their own problems. I hope it helps them to facethe things they needto face, or even just feels like a nice soft hand to hold and help them deal with whatever they’re going through.”
