In Kind

Genre: Experimental   Sounds Like: pure bathing culture, austra

In a welcome gesture, Montreal-based experimental rockers BRAIDS have heralded the release of their sophomore album, Flourish//Perish, with a new six-minute single “In Kind.” Last month, we experienced a taste of the band’s first new sounds since Native Speaker when they released “Amends,” the mesmerizing B-side on the 12” that also features today’s drop. Both songs deviate significantly from BRAIDS’s earlier guitar-laden sound, but the finely woven dream of looping synths and Dirty Projectors-esque dissonance of “In Kind” are a welcome addition to any oeuvre. Stream it above.

BRAIDS’ Flourish//Perish, due out August 20th via Arbutus. Pre-order your copy here.
