Deep Running - Single
Montreal-based trio Braids released the tightly-knit and critically acclaimed Flourish//Perish last year and intentionally omitted the track “Deep Running”, claiming it would have interrupted the continuity of the album. Luckily the band is sharing it with us now via YouTube. Vocalist Raphaelle Standell-Preston has a talent for sounding simultaneously graceful and glacial, a winning combination especially when paired with her stunning poetic lyrics. The expressive track is dreamlike and comforting, and a fantastic single in its own right – it’s a testament to this band’s talents that they consider “Deep Running” b-side quality.
Catch Braids on tour with Wye Oak: Canadian dates include Montreal May 10 at Il Motore and Toronto May 11 at The Horseshoe Tavern.
