Braids are a three-piece experimental pop band from Montreal. In the spring of 2015 they released Deep In The Iris, their standout third record. Companion is the band's latest 4 track EP, written during the Deep In The Iris sessions, and completed during a burst of creative energy in August 2015.
Here Braids use the palette of Deep In The Iris to paint decidedly different vistas - joy, disaffection, thunderous explosion to delicate introspection, the minimalistic power of Companion to the patient blossoming of Sweet World.
Distinct in their own right, these 4 songs are not to be dismissed as b-sides, outtakes, or the lesser of a group of songs. Though it uses Deep In The Iris as a compositional guidepost, Companion is a breathtaking journey all of its own.
