Stream: Braids / Purity Ring releasing "7 split

Our beloved Braids has teamed up with Purity Ring (both Canadian) to release a "7 split album. On one side, you've got the ghost-voiced future-pop of Purity Ring; While "Belispeak" adds little new to the duo's arsenal of sound, it's nevertheless another consistent and provocative entry in the group's small but promising collection of singles.

On the flip side, our Braids — the act behind hypnotic heartbreaker Native Speaker  — drops another bit of their signature ambient, slow-burning, and emotive pop music in "Peach Wedding." "Peach Wedding," already a signature of the band's live set, captures Braids in top form: an otherworldly cocktail of sounds lush, vibrant, and intensely captivating. Time to turn on the volume!
