Braids return with new single 'Retriever'

After briefly returning to deliver their standalone singles 'Slayer Moon' and '2020' last year, Braids are back once again to unveil a brand new offering.

The new track 'Retriever' marks their first piece of new material so far this year, as they set off to support Future Islands on a number of live shows in the coming months.

Braids describe the song as "a 9-minute journey track, simple in its sentiment of love and friendship, yet complex in its lush arrangement and textural experimentation. We returned to our roots with this one, exploring new corners of sound, collaboration and a ‘DGAF’ attitude with where we ended up. This song is a trip back to euphoric freedom and lightness during a time of intense isolation. We were happy to travel there, and for you to now dive into it.”
