Heads up, fans of New Zealand indie pop siblings BROODS! Though the pair haven’t released anything new since their magnificent sophomore album Conscious last summer, Georgia Nott of BROODS has launched a new solo endeavor named The Venus Project, whose music is created completely by women. A full album has already been readied for release on March 8th, or International Women’s Day, and we now get to partake in its first single Won’t Hurt, a delicately trickling, dusky ethereal electro-pop and alt pop gem that takes us back to BROODS’ earlier, more subtle and understated days. It’s a gorgeous tune, and it’s available, here.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! Guess who’s back with a fresh new tune? Australian disco and electronica duo Flight Facilities, that’s who! It’s always a big deal when the Sydney producers drop a new one, much less another guest studded affair like Stranded, featuring electropop darlings Broods, multi-talented artist Reggie Watts, and Los Angeles vocalist Saro! Funky keys, sultry vocals, and a whole lot of soulful disco charm abound on this classy composition. Stranded comes with a peculiarly captivating music video filmed in a decommissioned prison in Sydney. Director Tom Noakes explores the relationship between two lovers and the emotions that can surface in a simple human embrace in his film. Stream/purchase Stranded, here. Along with the release of last single Arty Boy, 2017′s turning out to be a fine one for this long time Flight Facilities fan.

Brooding electronica tune from Edinburgh-based electro pop singer songwriter EMILIE titled ‘Never Enough’. The song’s essentially about greed in today’s world and never being satiated. Emilie has a sound similar to BANKS, Lapsley, Broods… etc.

Heartlines, BROODS collaboration with co-writer Lorde, is easily a favorite off ot the New Zealand outfit’s second album Conscious. MOUNT, the talented Austrian producer who often partners up with filous to suffuse us with melodic dance feels, affords us a sublime re-visit of Heartlines via a cool cruising chill house remix. This airy bouncing, blushed glowing Heartlines leaves me yearning for the warmth and sunshine of spring and summer. The official remix is out now on iTunes.

New Zealand darlings BROODS collaborated with dark pop goddess Lorde on Heartlines, one of my favorite tracks off their magnificent sophomore album Conscious from earlier this year. In the second Cheat Codes related post of the day, we gleefully share with you the Los Angeles electronic project’s incandescent remix of that song. They’ve given Heartlines the signature Cheat Codes treatment. Heartlines sparkles and springs from within a dazzling sea of balmy waving tropical house. Cheat Codes’ exultant, ebullient remix is available from all major outlets, here.

New Zealand’s BROODS is one busy sister brother duo these days. Not only have they been revealing songs from their highly anticipated sophomore album, but the two also guest on a much welcome new song from Australia’s Jarryd James! 1000x is darkly moody and softly stirring. Its dusky melancholic beauty is the perfect match to BROODS’ featured bittersweet vocals. My heart is torn asunder by this tender pop ballad. Excuse me as I wipe a tear away from the corner of my eye. Is it a little dusty in here? It is, isn’t it?

New Zealand’s BROODS seemed to hint at a change in direction when they revealed their spirited single Free earlier this year, their first new song since much more subdued and haunting debut album Evergreen. It left me wildly curious about how the rest of the new material would sound. We get a bit of an answer in the brother sister duo’s latest, an electronic pop song named Heartlines which was co-written with dark pop princess Lorde. Heartlines takes us back to some of BROODS earlier ballads. It’s much more dusky and haunting, restrained and enchanting, though it’s certainly catchy and resolute, too. BROODS does what they do best on the song… brood beautifully, in an ocean of ebbing and tiding synths. BROODS’ sophomore album Conscious drops June 24th on Capitol Records.

We all fell head over heels for New Zealand’s Broods back several years ago, melting plentifully to the duo’s darkly dreamy electropop. The duo were easily one of the most buzzing acts of 2014 as they released their fantastic debut album Evergreen. After waiting patiently for what the duo had sheltered away to create for us next, we finally get to hear brand new Broods today. Free is a clattering eruption of powerful electropop, one that sees them venturing into the bold and edgy side of the sonic spectrum, one that teeters at times on the edge of industrial pop. The futuristic dystopia of the story told within Free’s music video is also as audacious and bold as we’ve ever seen the erstwhile demure and reserved sibling duo. Free leaves me much excited to hear more from this newly evolved version of Broods. The single is available now from iTunes.
