Braids releases new video for “Miniskirt”

Braids release their new video for "Miniskirt," off 'Deep in the Iris'

Today, Braids have released their new video for “Miniskirt.” The band chose to work with director Kevan Funk to combine their own initial ideas with the director’s eye for creating a visual landscapes. Funk is well known for his music videos for artists such as The Zolas and Wake Owl, as well as acclaimed indie films Everything All At Once, Yellowhead, and Destroyer.

He notes, “When thinking about the song and its content, I became very interested in the idea of commodification and control of femininity in a patriarchal societal construct, and liberation from that restraint.” Braids will be hitting the road for a number of shows with Purity Ring, They play tonight in Burlington, VT.
