Melbourne queens of indie-noir Kelly Day and Jane Hendry are Broads.
Drawing from an era of highly performative crooners, Broads nevertheless deliver a uniquely authentic show. Haunting, narcotic and deceptively sweet, their songs are laced with acerbic criticism of the culture from which they stem.
Their debut album ‘Vacancy’ was described by theMusic as ‘a mellifluous collection of songs utterly drenched in enticing melodies and harmonies... a simply gorgeous, often haunting, always sublime inaugural full-length outing’. It was feature album on both TripleRRR and PBS FM, and almost a year after its release found its way onto best-of-2017 lists, including PBS FM’s top 10 albums, and Basement Disc’s best releases.
‘If we die tomorrow, we die better for having had Day and Hendry sing to us’
(The Metal Dad)
"Seductive. Unnervingly so. This Melbourne duo sound too good to be true."
(Nick Rodwell, 4ZZZ)
"hauntingly beautiful, perfectly soothing"
