The 10th Most Poptastic Single of 2016: Broods – Free

Released: 1st April
Writers:  Joel Little, Caleb Nott, Georgia Nott
Trivia: As much as I’d tried, I’d never been a fan of Broods before this song, but I loved it on first listen because it reminded me of the American band Delta Rae, one of my favourite discoveries of 2015. It’s a song of several parts which fit together seamlessly, and has the same tribal drama and darkness, mixed with pop sensibilities and a strong chorus. The lyrics express how the success and responsibility we strive for can make us less free than when we had nothing.
Best bits: 1.  Gritting your teeth, you hold onto me
2.  I’m desperate to run, I’m desperate to leave, if I lose it all at least I’ll be free
3.  It’s clear you think that I’m inferior
