Montreal experimental outfit Braids continue to share new material off their sophomore album, Flourish // Perish, due out August 20th via Arbutus. Following in the footsteps of “In Kind”, “Amends” and last week’s mystical “Hossack”, new song “Fruend” is an amorphous and intricate creature. Clocking in at almost five minutes, it seamlessly shifts between soft, ticking hypnotics and wild percussion paired with ghostly chanting. With all its unexpected twists and turns, the track further proves the band’s creative prowess and ability to enliven all musical moments, big and small.

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