Braids share new video for “Joni”

Braids share new video for "Joni," the song comes off the bands latest EP 'Companion.'

Last week, the Montreal trio Braids released an appendix to their lauded 2015 LP ‘Deep In The Iris,’ a 19 minute EP ‘Companion.’

Today, they share a video directed by Maria Ines Manchego for the track “Joni” via Dazed. The visual piece explores the end of a relationship, with a couple striving to reclaim their individuality while remaining close together.

On ‘Companion’ Braids use the ‘Deep In The Iris’ palette to paint decidedly different vistas – joy, disaffection, thunderous explosion to delicate introspection, the minimalistic power of “Companion” to the patient blossoming of “Sweet World”.
