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.
