Two years ago, Montreal’s BRAIDS released one of the hidden gems of 2011. Native Speaker was a throbbing masterpiece of impish adventure, with opener ‘Lemonade’ proving to be one of the most endearing pop songs of the year, whereas electro-kraut slow-burners such as ‘Lammicken’ pointed to a eerier side of the band. With their new album Flourish // Perish out later this summer, BRAIDS have released a video for their new song ‘In Kind’. The song unfurls in an ambient, prolonged shimmer whilst singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston uses her vocals to create dreamlike flashes of sublimity. Looking to be a more textural, electronic listen than Native Speaker, Flourish // Perish will be released on 19 August 2013 via Full Time Hobby.
