Talking about the artists we love

Broods Does a ‘1 Mic 1 Take’ Performance of ‘Heartlines (Acoustic)’ and It’s Simple and Beautiful (Video)

I love the trend of videotaping a ‘1 mic 1 take’ song that quite a few mid-level artists are doing nowadays. Especially when the artist proves that they really are the ‘real deal’.

Artists like New Zealand electro-pop duo Broods, who have just put out a ‘1 mic 1 take’ video of their song ‘Heartlines (Acoustic)‘. A take that is so touching, because it is beautiful in its simplicity and because lead singer Georgia Nott does such a gorgeous job.

Heartlines‘ was co-written by Broods and fellow kiwi Lorde, and is not only lovely musically but it has some wonderful lyrics as well — “I don’t always play nice, but I want to feel your heartlines” — now I know that feeling well.

The song is from the duo’s latest album Conscious, which was released in mid-2016, and in its original recorded version is a very cool electro-pop dance track with a nice beat. In its acoustic version, it becomes sweeter, but also much more sad.

Watch Broods doing a ‘1 mic 1 take’ recording of ‘Heartlines (Acoustic)‘ in the video below. I just love this as the acoustic guitar adds such poignancy, and Georgia’s voice and her way of singing this song is just about perfect.

And, if you love the song and want to hear more, you can buy their album Conscious on most major music sites.
