To record their third album, Deep In The Iris, Braids decamped to a series of retreats in the mountains of Arizona, Vermont, and upstate New York. Surrounded by nature in all its warm vitality, the longtime bandmates strove to shed the fabric of their day to day relationships, being bare and vulnerable before one another. What resulted is Deep In The Iris, their strongest record to date – powerful, yet fragile; immaculately sculpted, but deeply human.
They just released a video for their single Miniskirt, watch it below:
We were also able to catch Braids when they opened for Purity Ring on May 21 at the Cains Ballroom in Tulsa. After a bit if a rough start with some electrical problems ,they took over the stage and gave us a memorable performance, that afterwards, sent a rush of people from the sold out crowd to their merch booth, most leaving with their album in hand.
