Broods- “Mother & Father”

If you’re looking for irresistibly catchy, intelligently crafted pop with a slightly dark, moody edge that sets it apart from the mass of generic stuff out there, look no further than the latest single from New Zealand electropop duo Broods. With a steady, driving beat, soaring, yearning choruses, and wonderfully varied vocal dynamics, it evokes the best work of artists such as Ellie Goulding, Lorde, Florence and The Machine, and MSMR. I’m thinking “Mother & Father” just might be the song that gains this relatively new duo even more recognition and popularity.

This is the second remix of this song I’ve come across in the past week, and I like the darker spin that L D R U puts on it. The original song has a more upbeat, shiny feel to it, and this lets me experience it in a completely different way. He’s added in some interesting beats that are quite effective and work really well with the vocals. Check it out.

Check out these remixes by one of my favorite new electronic artists, ASTR. They’ve got a smooth, sultry, and slightly edgy style that sets them apart and they’ve added their signature touch to New Zealand brother-sister duo Broods’ “Bridges,” as well as Neon Trees’ “Sleeping With A Friend.”
