Our new album – Shadow Offering – is out tomorrow. It’s been a long time coming with this one, a long chapter in each of our lives, a record we dug deep to unearth. We’re so proud of this music, and are truly grateful of the chance to bring it to life. For us this is a moment of celebration, a cathartic moment at which something so deeply a part of us is shared, and hopefully becomes a part of u. A special thank you goes out to all those who helped us along the way, you know who you are and we love you <3 Tomorrow is June 19th, also known as Juneteenth, a day commemorating the abolition of slavery in the United States. In solidarity with Black Lives Matter, we won’t be posting about our album tomorrow. Instead, we’ll be continuing to educate ourselves about racial injustice, interacting with our community, and continuing to give space to important voices that need to be heard. We encourage you to do the same. xo, Braids

Today we release our new song ‘Just Let Me’. I had the rare pleasure of directing the accompanying music video, my first. ~ link in bio ~ With this video and song we sought to examine the elements both physical and emotional that stand in the way of our ability to love and be loved – feelings of complacency, loss of autonomy and freedom, and the contradictory desire for something which is no longer new to feel fresh, as though you are experiencing each other again for the very first time. While writing this song, I recall feeling far away from my partner, our silence louder than shouting words, wondering “how can I get through to you?” I am grateful to have been able to explore this very question with two incredible dancers and dear friends Stephen John Quinlan @squinlan and Justin De Luna @justindelu , and choreographer Axelle Munezero @axelle_ebony . We spent many Sundays together at Axelle’s studio, seeking to understand love in its many forms through body and movement. It was an emotional yet liberating experience – a lot of sweat, tears and laughter went into this. Thank you to all involved who believed in seeing this video through from beginning to end. My whole heart and respect goes out to Derek Branscombe @derekbranscombe , DOP and with whom I directed this video, for beautifully elevating the imagery I had playing in my head, taking it to realms I didn’t know possible. I have to say, this is one of the things I am most proud of having been a part of. – Raphaelle
~ tomorrow ~ You’re right I’m wrong You’re wrong I’m right The fights The fights Just wanna lift your arms up and start dancing with you Dancing with you There’s sometimes so much noise between us And I wish it could just be quiet for a moment Quiet for a moment Just let me Let me get through to you Just let me You get that look in your eye So far away like there’s a valley between us It’ll take days to cross it To get back in your arms At times I grow tired Of trying to find it Like searching for water in a desert Like milking a rock Where oh where Where did our love go? Where did our love go? Oh I wanna know Where did our love go? It was here yesterday Just let me Let me get through to you
Releasing a new song + video this Thursday! I had the rare pleasure of directing this music video, my first!, alongside @derekbranscombe . This song is one of my true favourites from the record, really excited to share it with u, xo Raphaelle
