Announced: Braids – Euphoric Recall + ‘Evolution’

Canadian experimental pop band Braids announces their new album Euphoric Recall. Set for release on April 28th. A freer and wholly anew effort, their fifth studio album finds the trio abandoning strategy, burning it down, and realizing their love record. Love, all of it; the unbound bliss, the budding impulses, and the messy imperfections, a supernova swirled up in a suite of bold, melodic, symphonic pop songs surrendered to the present. Braids also releases their new single ‘Evolution,’ a clear eyed and calm banger that gives the record a grounded notion amidst the sprawling pace.

Of the new song, singer/guitarist Raphaelle Standell-Preston stated, “Evolution in and of itself is a patient act. Our pursuit of the individual self, which comprises all realms of human emotion, is sweetened with the intention and act of patience from ourselves, from those that we love and those who love us.” Last year, Braids teased the forthcoming album with ‘Retriever,’ a luscious and meandering nine minute journey that they called “simple in its sentiment of love and friendship, yet complex in its lush arrangement and textural experimentation.” It was picked up by Brooklyn Vegan, Under The Radar, and Stereogum who said it “builds and glides over an expansive runtime.
