Broods has teamed up with Swedish singer Tove Lo for their dreamy new single “I Keep.”
The track is taken from their latest album ‘Space Island’, which was released today (February 18). An atmospheric cut, it vibrates with scintillating production, spacious vocals and quiet harp touches.
“I Keep” arrived with an accompanying lyric video, featuring visuals created by Vinyl Williams and typography courtesy of Jack McEntee. The clip transports the viewer to an animated Technicolor world, featuring numerous Roman pillars, ivy chains, and other intriguing objects. Watch it below.
“During the quieter months of the pandemic, I was doing a lot of zoom sessions. This song came from a Swedish producer called Madde,” lead singer Georgia Nott explained in a press release.
“I said to him that day, ‘I feel like a moth that flies endlessly into a burning porch lamp, then reincarnates, only to die the same way over and over again.’ We thought it would be fun to write like I really was a moth and “I Keep” happened. I knew Tove would know exactly what I really meant when I said I was a moth. And she did.
“Caleb and Georgia are like my family, and I love making music with them,” Lo added. “‘I Keep’ has come a long way and I think it’s so beautiful and dreamy.”
The duo were due to play their “Space Island” shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne next month, but have pushed back those dates to April. The original tickets are still valid for the postponed shows.
“Space Island” marks Broods’ fourth album, and their first since 2019’s “Don’t Feed The Pop Monster.” It includes previously released cuts “Heartbreak,” “Locked On You” featuring Kito and “My Mind,” among others.
