Title: Deep in the Iris

1. Product Details

Braids are a three-piece experimental pop band from Montreal. 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. Raphaelle Standell has always had a formidable voice but rarely has it sounded as vital focused and powerful as it does here. True to the process that birthed it the record explores a number of heavy subjects including pornography abuse and slutshaming. Standells emotional vulnerability becomes a triumphant weapon in its own right: scything through wrongdoing and shame with equal aplomb and clearing the way for the many others who will find resonance in the bravery of these lyrics. Written from a place of inspiring strength and unblinking lucidity the lyricism of this record is a cathartic gift.
