Braids share new single & video, “Just Let Me”

The Montreal-based three-piece Braids have shared a new single & video “Just Let Me“, which is taken from their new album, Shadow Offering, out on June 19th 2020 via Secret City Records.

“Just Let Me” is a song that explores the push and pull of a relationship, the narratives created between partners, and inevitable hardships of love. The accompanying video is singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston‘s directorial debut with collaborator Derek Branscombe.

The song was born of a desire to get through to one’s partner, to work through those feelings of complacency, stagnation, of pointless arguments; when you feel your partner, though sitting across the table from you, is further away than if they were not there at all,” stated the band. “It’s a yearning to understand how a love that was once there and so clear, could slip away. It asks the universal question that so many relationships encounter along their journey – where did our love go?

Raphaelle continued, “I am grateful to have been able to explore this very question with two incredible dancers and dear friends Stephen John Quinlan, Justin De Luna, and choreographer Axelle Munezero. It was an emotional yet liberating experience – a lot of sweat, tears, and laughter went into this. I have to say, it’s one of the things I am most proud of having a part of.
