NEWS: BRAIDS premiere video for ‘Plath Heart’ on Pitchfork

SappySunday_11
The young band also receives raving press from a variety of publications, has a television debut and embarks on a 40+ date tour of North America

Nearly a week and a half after releasing their hugely well-received debut album Native Speaker, Braids announce the stunning video for ‘Plath Heart’ via Pitchfork.tv. The ‘Plath Heart’ video, created by visual artist Blair Neal, captures the very essence of Braids; textured, almost microscopic, visual experiments create a wonderfully cinematic, visually arresting netherworld to accompany the song’s undeniably radiant spark.
After a way sold-out album release performance at Montreal’s La Sala Rossa last week, the band will soon be venturing away from their hometown in favour of a long trek across North America. Travel companions Baths, Starslinger, Toro Y Moi and Cloud Nothings will be co-headlining on several dates. The band will also perform a much-anticipated performance in their former hometown of Calgary at the beautiful Grand Theatre with Kris Ellestad and Memory Screen. Dates listed below.
 Chatter about the Native Speaker is only increasing. Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Vice, L Magazine, Globe and Mail, and numerous other publications, have all chimed in favour of the band’s glorious debut album. The band also had their network TV premiere on Musique Plus last week, performing “Plath Heart”.
Native Speaker is now available in retailers and on flemisheye.com.
