BRAIDS release video for "Miniskirt," tour (2015)

BRAIDS’ latest video for the hard-hitting feminist anthem “Miniskirt” was released today. See Raphaelle as you’ve never seen her before in this awespiring video.
Director Kevan Funk explains the video’s concept saying, “When thinking about the song and its content, I began very interested in the idea of commodification and control of femininity in a patriarchal societal construct, and liberation from that restraint….That dynamic and the song’s authorial resistance to that entitlement is what ultimately formed the thematic core of the video.”
