Braids unveil new single 'Snow Angel'

With their highly-anticipated new album postponed until the summer, Braids have now quenched out thirst for new music by sharing the next cut taken from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Snow Angel' follows on from the previously unveiled tracks 'Young Buck' and 'Eclipse (Ashley)' in previewing their new LP 'Shadow Offering', which is now due to be released on the 19th June via Secret City Records.

Speaking about their latest offering, the band said, “‘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.

"For me, it was deeply therapeutic to write and sing this song; saying things out loud can help us to not feel so alone, can help validate our natural fears about the future of our world, and can bring to light some of the hard questions that many of us are asking ourselves. I believe that art can change our relationship to fear. We hope this song can offer you a moment of catharsis and relief, in the same way writing and performing it has for us.”
