Listen! Braids – Miniskirt
Braids have returned with a new, powerful statement on the world of sexuality and feminism. The song is called Miniskirt, and I will avoid making any sexual innuendos or offensive, snarky remarks (okay, just one – the song is named after what I wore to my high school prom to match what my date was wearing).
Miniskirt explodes after a couple of minutes, transforming into an electronic, skittery and driven track. The song shifts and morphs throughout, from its initial focus on vocals to a hard-to-keep-up-to beat at times, before slowing it down again. Check out the new one from Braids, and watch for new album Deep in the Iris, out April 28. Revisit our review of them at NXNE in 2013, too.
