Four years after Deep In The Iris, Canadian band Braids (Raphaelle Standell-Preston, Taylor Smith, Austin Tufts) announced the release of a new album titled Shadow Offering which will be on April 24th via Secret City Records. We already shared “Eclipse (Ashley)“; “Young Buck” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Kevin Calero.
Shadow Offering is about the failures of people to love and be loved and it recounts pain, heartbreak, anger, but also lifts the heart towards hope. About the single, Braids’ singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston stated: “We wrote this song to capture the nervous anticipation of desire, the delicate chase of seduction, the highs and lows of obsession, and the humour in between. To want to possess someone, make them desire you, fall for you, only to learn that to lust is not to love.“
