With their new record ‘Shadow Offering’ set to land on 19th June via Secret City Records, Montreal-based indie art-rockers Braids have shared the latest taste of what to expect, unveiling new track ‘Just Let Me’.
“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,” the band say of the sizzling new song. “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?”
Accompanied by a video directed by singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston, Raphaelle continues, “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.”
