“‘French Braid’ is a vivid confession,” says Danny Brewer, the creative force behind Georgia-based alt-folk outfit Besides Daniel, of the band’s new single. A boundless chorus and kinetic verses weave a backdrop while trembling lyrics gush “I will peel back the crust of the earth, I will dive in.” Written over a five-year period, “French Braid,” which took many different forms before the final version emerged, is a dynamically-imparted dreamy reflection that simmers with desire.
“French Braid” is featured on Beside Daniel’s new album T E E M I N G, inspired by life lessons learned during the initial deep dive into young adulthood. T E E M I N G is set for release on August 24th.
