Braids have returned with a new single called ‘Retriever’. It marks their first new music since the release of the 2021 tracks ‘Slayer Moon’ and ‘2020’. Take a listen below.
The Montreal-based band – composed of Raphaelle Standell-Preston, Austin Tufts, and Taylor Smith – described ‘Retriever’ as “a 9-minute journey track, simple in its sentiment of love and friendship, yet complex in its lush arrangement and textural experimentation.” They added: “We returned to our roots with this one, exploring new corners of sound, collaboration and a ‘DGAF’ attitude with where we ended up. This song is a trip back to euphoric freedom and lightness during a time of intense isolation. We were happy to travel there, and for you to now dive into it.”
Braids’ most recent album, Shadow Offering, came out in 2020.
