New Zealand artist and producer Caleb Nott, most known as one half of the critically acclaimed duo BROODS, has shared ‘Make Me Feel’ featuring Jarryd James, the first track from his passion project, Fizzy Milk. Caleb and Jarryd met four years ago when Jarryd opened for BROODS on their Australian tour. The two also previously collaborated on “1000x” from Jarryd’s 2016 debut album. On ‘Make Me Feel,’ Caleb blends soul vibes with psychedelic samples as Jarryd’s croons float across the track with ease. Listen to ‘Make Me Feel’ here: https://umusicNZ.lnk.to/MakeMeFeel
While Caleb made his way to Los Angeles alongside his sister Georgia in BROODS, the sibling’s sleek, minimal synth-pop hits only express one side of his creativity and character as a songwriter and a producer. Exploring the nuanced sampling, electronic production, and live instrumentation skills he’s honed in BROODS as well as his experience producing and working with artists like Troye Sivan, Charli XCX, Caleb is using Fizzy Milk to flip the script. Drawing influence from the sample-based big beat sound of the late 90s (Moby, The Chemical Brothers, etc.) and the kaleidoscopic funk rock and virtual reality pop of N.E.R.D and Gorillaz, Fizzy Milk is an outlet for Caleb to explore, express, and expand upon his inner musical visions.
“These songs are just little slivers of myself, the stuff I do every day in the studio that no one normally hears,” Caleb shares, it’s the same with the artwork. I’m just doing the stuff I’ve always thought about, but haven’t had an outlet for. I’m just going to drop songs when I feel like it, and maybe work towards a record in the future.”
