Braids announce new album ‘Shadow Offering’

They’ve also shared the video for lead single ‘Young Buck’.

After returning in November with the beautiful ‘Eclipse (Ashley)’, Montreal-based indie art-rockers Braids are back with another banger and, even more excitingly, news of their forthcoming new album!

Sharing new track ‘Young Buck’, the lead single from new LP ‘Shadow Offering’, singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston says, “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.”

Lifted from their upcoming record, which is set to land on 24th April, Raphaelle says the album has “more hopefulness than anything else I’ve written. I think the songs are more human, more tangible, more honest.”
