Montreal Quartet, the BRAIDS, Gain Critical Acclaim

Led my female vocalist Raphaelle Standell-Preston, this experimental/folk/trippy pop group is breaking barriers with groundbreaking music. Using intense vocal harmonies and melodies along with pulsing and vibrant yet mello music, BRAIDS creates an almost euphoric dream like listening experience for all the senses.

These four best friends from High School gambled on skipping college, and choose to make music instead. Their hard work paid off as they are now being noticed for their self-released debut, Native Speaker.

They were recently named to Stereogum’s “40 Best New Artists of 2010“, and recorded a “Pop Montreal Session” while at Break Glass Studios. Listen to that session here.
