But first, explore a magical 12 inch...

BRAIDS have confirmed plans to release their debut album this summer.

Often, losing a member can cripple new groups. For Canadian group BRAIDS, though, this departure seemed to spur them on, to ignite ambitions long held inside.

Secluding themselves away in their Montreal studio, the band began experimenting, fusing dream pop hymnals with lush, evocative harmonies.

Partnered by Full Time Hobby, BRAIDS are now ready to unveil their new album. Due to appear later this year, the trio are first teasing fans with a one off 12 inch.

'In Kind' / 'Amends' is a strong indication of what to expect: bars have been raised, standards kept with the three piece appearing to love every second of it.

'Amends' is already online, and it's quite the thing of beauty - listen to it below.

'In Kind' / 'Amends' is set to be released on June 10th.
