CoSigned experimental outfit Braids will release their sophomore album, Flourish // Perish on August 20th via Arbutus. Following in the footsteps of both “Amends” and “In Kind”, the Montreal group continue to showcase their unique deconstructed-meets-futuristic approach to pop with new song “Hossak”. Airy, mesmerizing and mystical, the track’s highlighted by its haunting delicacy and singer Raphaelle Standelle-Preston’s elastic vocals, which have a poetic way of bending and billowing almost effortlessly.

Flourish // Perish Tracklist:
01. Victoria
02. Fruend
03. December
04. Hossak
05. Girl
06. Together
07. Ebben
08. Amends
09. Juniper
10. In Kind
