Braids hit #1 at Earshot


Coming back with a strong sophomore release, this week Braids have hit #1 at Earshot’s Top 50 chart! Flourish//Perish has been lauded by the press far and wide:

“The songs here are built from short, synaptic and repetitive firing, tiny loops, short glitches, silvery hooks that corkscrew into your memory.” – Pitchfork Media7.8/10

“… their second album, caresses your ears with chiffon textures, complex but elegant drum patterns and a litany of exquisite flourishes (the manipulation of Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s pixie-ish vocals is sublime).” – NME8/10

“Peaks and drops alike unveil a rich and full detail that becomes beautifully granular on subsequent listens without being obscure or academic.” – Under the Radar8/10
