Watch Broods perform "Mother & Father" on TV
Broods knew this “Late Night with Seth Meyers” performance was very important for their US promotion, so they tried to look and sound their best. Georgia Nott pulled back her hair, and put on a black leather two piece outfit. Caleb Nott stood by his sister's side while playing the piano, and there was a random drummer kid who just did his thing alone in the back. (Was he necessary?...well, the performance was 100% live so I gues yes). Did I like the performance? I thought it was solid. but I got a lost a bit while taking a watch. There were really energetic moments and others that were a little bit bland. True that’s the way the song’s structured, but I think that for live performances Broods have to push the envelope a tad so they don't lose viewer's attention. Perhaps adding a cool beat break to the performance, or a add a light effect?.
