Braids Announce New Album <i>Flourish / / Perish</i>

Montreal electronic psych-pop band Braids have undergone many changes since their last full-length, Native Speaker, was released in 2011. Not only has the band altered their lineup after keyboardist Katie Lee left the group, but they’ve also ditched their guitars for their electronic-based sophomore album Flourish / / Perish, which is set to be released on Aug. 20.

“One of the dynamics that we try to uphold is being really real,” singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston told Exlaim! Magazine, which makes it all the more interesting to hear that the group’s sole guitar-based track is the just-released “In Kind.”

Rich layers of atmospheric rhythms and dissolving percussion drive the group’s new track “In Kind”, which will be featured on an upcoming 12” In Kind / / Amends, featuring two tracks from their forthcoming LP.

Listen to “In Kind” below, which will be released on June 11 with the previously released “Amends”.
