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 June 19th via Secret City Records. We already shared “Eclipse (Ashley)“ and “Young Buck”; “Snow Angel” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Kevan Funk.
They explain: ‘Snow Angel’ was written in the immediate wake of the 2016 US election, as our collective conscience took a sharp inhale. It’s a diary entry of sorts – a snapshot of the mind grappling with our era’s endless barrage of content and destruction, continents away and close to home.
This moment, with our world in the midst of a pandemic, is admittedly a new context. But I can’t help but sense the song speaks to feelings many of us are experiencing – uncertainty, angst and a desperate desire to make sense of it all.”
