On Broods' startling debut album that came Lorde approved, the brother-sister managed to combine elements of symphonic pop with the polyphonic madness of modern electronica. Stripping it down to pure, addictive electronic minimalist pop, Conscious drops the more melodic, new wavy elements of their previous album and gives you what they call "a punch in the face." The pair from New Zealand uses neo-futuristic production and elements that cross a path between cyberpunk, pop, modern experimental electronics, and house. Songs have drum-machine disco beats and kicks with choral-like synths and power vocals that drip with emotion. The first single, "Free," gives you a feeling what they're about when Georgia Nott cries out, "I'd lose everything so I can sing/Hallelujah, I'm free." It's a gut-wrenching performance that leads to some of the most addictive dance-pop this year. Her mantra-like delivery resembles another synth line of heavy bass that rattles you to your bones. "Heartlines," their collaboration with Lorde, builds up with the dramatic flair she has mastered. The song takes unexpected silences, breaks, and moments of tranquility to explode with powerhouse vocals and layers of heavenly electronic sounds. "Couldn't Believe" shows off Georgia's distinctly Kiwi accent as she chants over and over against synths that almost replicate an audience singing along. Conscious might be a more commercial friendly step for their sophomore album, but it shows off their ability to create songs that get you moving.
