A braid is "a complex structure or pattern formed by intertwining three or more strands of flexible material such as textile fibers, wire, or human hair." Braids is a band who makes complex musical structures or patterns by intertwining three or more elements such as guitars, vocals, drums, and synthesizers. Who would have thunk it - music and weaving have so much in common!
Braids - Lemonade
And as if just hearing the song isn't cool enough, we'll be catching them this weekend at the 2011 Hopscotch Festival! Braids playing Hopscotch? It's like a Norman Rockwell painting or something!
We'll let you know how it goes, but in the meantime, pick up the debut Native Speaker, right here.
