BRAIDS have just come back from performing in Amsterdam, and after their second or third song in the lead singer had some issues with her in-ears. After apologizing to the crowd, everyone in the audience was very accepting and even encouraged and screamed out words of encouragement telling her that she sounded great!
This is the first time I’ve even heard of or seen BRAIDS perform. And not only was their music unique and in some ways reminds me of the Denmark band MEW, their delightfully-soft-spoken lead singer was telling the crowd how much more “Victoria has been accepting of their [music]”.
At the end of the bands performance, a standing ovation was given to the trio which brought tears to the young lead piano vocalist.
It was definitely a great way to end the first night of Rifflandia music festival.
