Melbourne alt-country crooners Broads have announced plans to release their debut album Vacancy on the 24th February. The album is the duo’s first release since their amazing 2014 self-titled EP.
“Vacancy is our first full length album, and first venture into a denser, more orchestrated sound than our original duo,” Kelly Day and Jane Hendry explained. “We stole some of our favourite Melbournians to join the two of us on the record, and explore the possibilities of turning it into something quite cinematic. In saying that, the sounds we’ve put together are still fairly sparse. The album turned out to revolve around ideas of emptiness, or hollowness, and you can’t tackle that without really making use of space. That will always be a big part of what we do, and we’re thrilled to have managed to keep that feel with a full band involved.”
Broads will be touring Vacancy soon (dates to be announced). Check out the video for the single “Nod Off, Dream” below:
