“Soothing and suspenseful, complex and simple, delicate and harsh. Deep in the Iris is full of surprises.” – Bust Magazine
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.
The resulting LP has been warmly received far and wide, congratulations to Arbutus Records’ Braids on hitting #1 with Deep In The Iris at Earshot’s National Top 50 for five weeks & National Electronic chart for six!
