Braids recently released a new EP called Companion and on it, their single 'Joni' stood has a highlight. Now, the song has really great Maria Ines Manchego-directed visuals, which stars Braids-member Raphaelle Standell-Preston, who had this to say:

"Symbolically, the song is about wanting to be fine with not knowing where you’re headed, not knowing how things are going to end up. It's the desire to make a "home" within yourself when you’re say – living out of a suitcase in a van, your relationship is ending, or you’re dealing with whatever difficult scenario life is throwing at you. The ye olde question – Can we be ok even when everything outside of us is not?"

"More personally, the video explores a relationship ending: a couple strives to reclaim their individuality while trying to stay close together, the battle and beauty of what it’s like to be in a partnership. It's to be bored sometimes though still in love, to sometimes want to run away, scared to actually part because your whole world feels so wrapped up in them. Making this video was a testament to the song's lyrics – “We don’t know where we are going, I want to be fine with not knowing darling”… None of us knew if this would work but we all dove in, trusting our guts. Here is the outcome for that kind of instinctual trust – "Joni"
