Braids is what happens when four best friends decide to skip the whole college thing and devote themselves to music. From Calgary, the high school buddies made the move to Montreal, where they truly made a go of it. In the French-speaking Canadian city, their debut album, Native Speaker was conceived, perfected and produced.
A tangy whirlwind of experimentation, loops galore, and multi-layered ambience, Braids is a tingle-tangle to the ears. With Native Speaker only three months old, the band is touring in support of their brand new baby, so make sure you go see them live… because what a pretty baby it is.
