  • 'Flourish // Perish' showcases the strength of the band as a collective, and explores their burgeoning love for electronic music. The band brings their widely disparate strengths together to create a distinctive voice; the organic and complex rhythms dance and spar with sparsely decorative sounds, often fragmented, tampered, and filtered beyond recognition. Interwoven amongst these threads is the layered voice of Standell-Preston, her engaging lyrics and human performance drawing the listener close.

    Liner Notes

    The band invested most of 2012 recording the album in the band's garage in Montreal (which they converted into a recording studio) and at the Centre Phi

    Raphaelle Standell-Preston – guitar, lead vocals
    Katie Lee – keyboard, vocals
    Austin Tufts – drums, vocals
    Taylor Smith – bass, guitar, samples, percussion, vocals

    Designer Marc Rimmer created the album's cover art, a floating black orb.

  • Rich and strange, these Canadians recall Radiohead at their experimental best


    a masterclass in restrained beauty

    NME 8/10

    Can’t wait for the next album, because good things come in threes.


    one of the best albums of 2013


    The new album from the Canadians is one of the most convincing, precise electro-pop works of the season


    majestic and sculptural… a patient album that breezes through 10 steadily pulsing tracks


    It's a defiantly human album, depth and nuance adding satisfying layers to an already intriguing band.

    THE 405 8/10

    Braids has perfected their knack for consistently being able to draw the listener in with each song and bring them into their own world of trance like bliss.


    Rich layers of atmospheric rhythms and dissolving percussion
