BRAIDS – episch

Mit der letzten Single Young Buck sind wir spätestens endgültig der Indie-Art-Rock-Band Braids aus Montreal verfallen, nun legt das Trio ein Monster von einen Song nach: Snow Angel ist ein 9-minütiges Epos, das gefühlt alle Gefühlsregungen des neuen Albums Shadow Offering, das am 19. Juni via Secret City Records erscheint und von Chris Walla (Death Cab For Cutie) produziert wurde, durchlebt: Schmerz, Herzschmerz und Wut, nur um im nächsten Takt auch das Herz in Richtung Hoffnung zu erheben.

Die Band selbst sagt über den Song: “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.”
