HOMEWARD BOUND: As Broods, Georgia and Caleb Nott have been travelling the globe amid major buzz around their debut single Bridges.

Fresh from signing a major international record deal and creating a buzz overseas, Nelson duo Broods have been confirmed for a homecoming gig on New Year's Eve at Riwaka.

Broods, a brother-sister act comprising of former Peasants members Georgia and Caleb Nott will support Auckland dubsteppers Mt Eden as part of their Sky is Gold tour at the Riwaka Hotel on December 31.

Fellow Nelson musos Minuit also appear on the bill alongside hip hop artist Diaz Grimm.

The Notts have enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since their last gig as part of ground-breaking Nelson group The Peasants, stepping on to a similar path to that taken by Lorde, whose album Pure Heroine and single Royals have received critical acclaim and huge international success.

The siblings have been working with Lorde's producer Joel Little, releasing their first single Bridges online a month ago.

Manager Ashley Page said the song had already attracted international attention from music websites and radio stations and clocked up nearly 300,000 listens.

Broods have signed with Capitol Records in the United States and Polydor in Britain. The two labels will jointly release Broods' debut EP in February next year and a full-length album in August.
