Braids music

Canadian art rock trio BRAIDS collaborated with animator Stephen McNally on a music video for their track “Bunny Rose”, off their record Deep in the Iris, released in April.

It’s impossible not to be entranced while watching the veins of a person gradually metamorphosing from dust to water.  The animated likeness of frontwoman Raphaelle Standell-Preston gracefully makes her way through the city before finally making it home in human form.  Dense beats along with Standell-Preston’s delicate vocals seamlessly carry the character through the scenery.

The stunning animation conveys the lyrical meaning of the track with ease, which as described by the band themselves, is: “the desire to be loved yet a longing to be whole on one’s own.”
