Braids is a Montreal based freak / dream pop outfit which were arguably newcomers of the year with 2011’s surprise breakout album Native Speaker. They’re returning to their brand of jazz drumming backed bedroom pop vocals and art house song structure with a new release coming out Aug. 20th entitled Flourish / / Perish. Check one of their two early track releases below. The drumming is incredible and Raphaelle Standell-Preston’s vocals are expansive and emotive as always.
