This weeks artist both have something in common, and that is that both are made of up sibling duos.
Sounds Like: The XX , Ellie Goulding,CHVRCHES
BROODS is a brand-new brother-sister duo from Auckland, New Zealand. Georgia and Caleb Nott have recently released their debut track, “Bridges”. Georgia has a sweet vocal tone similar to that of Ellie Goulding and Caleb’s progressive production is definitely note worthy.
MTV’s Noteworthy Blog states:
“On “Bridges,” Georgia plays simple repetition to the band’s strength, breathlessly chanting variations of “Now I’m burning all the bridges/ Watching it go up in flames” throughout. The result is like some brilliant cross between CHVRCHES and Ellie Goulding — a mellowed-out take on Physical Therapy‘s “Drone On” featuring Jamie Krasner. Needless to say, we’ve already added “Bridges” to our “FALL JAMZ” playlist, and we recommend that you do the same.”

Their sounds is definitely a kind of alternative pop with heavy synth based production. Being from New Zealand they worked with producer Joel Little who recently produced Lorde’s debut Album Pure Heroine. They are pretty new and have limited information about them online but if this song is any indication of their talent I can see some good things in their future.

Name: Say Lou Lou
Sounds Like: HAIM, Lykke Li, Lorde
This twin sistter act hail from a Swedish-Australian background and have been creating some buzz in the blogosphere over the last year with their singles “Maybe You” and “Julian,” as well as their recent take on Tame Impala‘s “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.” With their recent singing to Columbia Record the dua is prepping their first major label EP called Better In The Dark on November 25. Check out their music below.
They definitely have a dark melancholy vibe that matches well with their image. The songs are impeccably produced and showcase the duos effortless vocals. The sound reminds me of a more pop sounding Lorde but with harmonies.
Both these sibling pairs definitely have a lot to offer and adapt current music trends and develop a unique sound. I like the fact that Broods consists of a male and a female member opening up their audience a lot more. On the other hand the twins in Say Lou Lou are both beautiful girls with good voices that sound well together. With groups like HAIM rising in popularity there is definitely a market for Say Lou Lou but unfortunately I think they will be in direct competition with other prominent female acts like Katy Perry, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, etc. For that reason I think if I had to sign either it would be Broods.
What do you all think? Who would you sign?
