WATCH – Braids “Here 4 U” + New Album Out Now

August 16th, 2020

Braids’ new album Shadow Offering is officially OUT NOW via Secret City Records. They’ve already premiered a bunch of amazing tracks from the album — “Eclipse (Ashley),” “Young Buck,” and “Snow Angel” — but now the band have given us the vide of “Here 4 U” (watch that below).

This is the opening track of their new album, and the band have shared the inspiration behind the song : “’Here 4 U’ is an oldie in our books. The original demo dates back four or five years, written while Austin and I spent a few months snowbirding in Los Angeles. It was one of the first songs we wrote for “Shadow Offering”, but the last we finished. We nearly lost this one on the cutting room floor, but in finding the album’s identity in the final weeks of mixing, so too did this song. In a way, it encapsulates the process of making this record – bursts of excitement and exploration, stretches of self-doubt, long days, long months, and the blissful self-discovery of finding our voice for this album.
