Braids’ follow-up to 2011’s Native Speaker is expected to surface this fall, but fans of the Montreal-based trio only have to wait until June 11 for In Kind // Amends, a 12-inch vinyl featuring new songs “In Kind” and “Amends,” both of which are slated for Braids’ upcoming sophomore LP. For now, the electronic three-piece have shared the latter track, a spare, danceable looper marked by hazy vocals and pillowy production.

The In Kind // Amends 12-inch will feature two exclusive tracks, “Near Enough” and “A Dawn in Me,” and will be released via Arbutus Records, the same label responsible for Braids’ next full-length. Full Time Hobby will handle the European edition of In Kind // Amends, while Flemish Eye will take care of the Canadian distribution). Pre-orders of the forthcoming short-player are now available.
