Last year, Montreal-based trio Braids released Flourish // Perish, the follow-up to their Polaris Prize-shortlisted debut Native Speaker. Today, the band have shared an outtake from that release, “Deep Running”.
Synths bubble and float throughout the track, while lead singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s voice wails and coos in rapid bursts. Though it didn’t make final cut of Flourish, its dreamily textured arrangements make for a worthwhile standalone single. Listen below.
Braids are also set to tour with Wye Oak next month. Their current docket is below.
