Braids Release Their New Single In Kind/amends On June 10th 2013

After the release of their critically acclaimed debut Native Speaker in 2011, Braids have returned with a new 12" In Kind // Amends.  Out June 10th on Full Time Hobby, the 12" features two singles from their forthcoming sophomore album, as well as two exclusive b-sides. 

After 18 months of touring in support of Native Speaker, along with the departure of a band member, the group secluded themselves in their Montreal studio for a year of writing and recording.  While Native Speaker was written in an organic and live environment, the group sought to explore a more introspective and electronic approach to songwriting.  Sonically, the songs from these sessions are delicate and tight, yet thoughtfully open up to the rich lushness reminiscent of their older material.  Lyrically they are honest and vulnerable, demonstrating the group's emotional growth and maturity since their last record.  

12" opener In Kind hits the pinnacle of the group's songwriting as a four piece.  Written live, it is a layered and emotionally raw saga.  Amends is a strong contrast, and shows the group's exploration into electronic and dance music.  Filling out the release are two exclusive tracks that explore the textured and atmospheric side of the band - the subtly percussive Near Enough and the mesmerizing A Dawn in Me. A handful of US and Canadian June live dates have been announced with news on further international dates coming soon.

Live Dates:

June 11th - Casa Del Popolo - Monreal, QC 
June 13th - Arbutus Showcase @ NXNE - Toronto, CA 
June 15th - Northside Festival @ Cameo Gallery - Brooklyn, NY
