CRITIC REVIEWS

80
PopMatters

For most of Conscious, Broods’ approach to electro-pop maximalism is irrefutably infectious, steeped in convention but none the worse for it. However, at times, the Notts are tripped up by their own formula, relying on bombast and sonic excess rather than authentic songcraft.

AllMusic

Conscious builds upon the promise of their debut and goes well beyond with a tight vision of a glimmering pop future for the Notts.

DIY

Sleek, elegant but neck deep in gory realities, ‘Conscious’ is a record that deals in the very best and worst of the world but instead of getting dragged down with the weight of these realisations, Broods climb high.

Exclaim!

Conscious is merely competent — never truly exciting.

Some of their best songs are in a unconsistent project.

The siblings go harder on the beats and redirect their sound while keeping their essence.
