Kiwi indie-pop siblings Broods have returned with their first single in over two years, 'Piece Of My Mind', accompanied by a B-movie inspired music video shot on 35mm and 16mm film in the South Island.
Georgia Nott, one half of the musical duo, explains that 'Piece Of My Mind' is the "opening fanfare" of the pair's forthcoming album Space Island.
"The song describes the many paradoxes we encounter when we try to escape our problems - the more we try to run away from our problems and ourselves, the more we are confronted with the aspects of each that we don’t like," she said in a statement.
"'Piece Of My Mind' is the moment I start reasoning with myself at the crossroads - to figure out where I am, and what's really at the heart of what I'm denying and trying to escape."
Broods worked with Canadian producer Stint, who has collaborated on hits with Mø and Carly Rae Jepsen.
"With the production, we wanted to make it sound like you were on this kind of jet pack trip where everything is shifting, where you’re escaping to this unknown world called Space Island," Georgia said.
Meanwhile, Caleb Nott said he and his sister "really got to have fun and play" while filming the sci-fi fantasy style music video, which according to Georgia, is intended to create a new world for fans to "come and visit from wherever they are".
"We wanted to do something really special, because we don't know when people are going to be able to go to live shows next," she explained.
