Wait, let me just put the song in here:
Stream: Broods, "Mother & Father"
Because really what can I add to an elegant pop song such as this but the transcribed lyrics to its chorus:
Ever since I left my mother, it's much harder to know
How to live my own life and how to make my own home
I don't want to wake up lonely, I don't want to just be fine
I don't want to keep up hoping, forget what I had in mind
Ever since I left my father, it's much harder to know
How to live my own life when all I need is home
Just hitting wicked replays and feeling increasingly lost but somehow also—I guess via identification with what lead singer Georgia describes—disconnectedly self-confident, like a planet in orbit. The New Zealand duo's self-titled EP is out now; "Mother & Father" doesn't feature on it, but offers an even better sign of the what comes next. Broods' debut album comes out later this year via Polydor and Capitol.
