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)“, “Snow Angel” and “Young Buck”; “Just let Me” is a new excerpt. Watch the official video directed by Raphaelle Standell-Preston and Derek Branscombe.
“The song was born of a desire to get through to one’s partner, to work through those feelings of complacency, stagnation, of pointless arguments; when you feel your partner, though sitting across the table from you, is further away than if they were not there at all,” stated the band. “It’s a yearning to understand how a love that was once there and so clear, could slip away. It asks the universal question that so many relationships encounter along their journey – where did our love go?“
Raphaelle continued, “I am grateful to have been able to explore this very question with two incredible dancers and dear friends Stephen John Quinlan, Justin De Luna, and choreographer Axelle Munezero. It was an emotional yet liberating experience – a lot of sweat, tears, and laughter went into this. I have to say, it’s one of the things I am most proud of having a part of.”
