Ahead of Helsinki vowel-lovers Siinai releasing their second record Supermarket later this month, the band have given us a full stream of the album - have a listen above.

Following up their debut, 2011's Olympic Games, and Hearbreaking Bravery, their collaboration with Spencer Krug under his Moonface guise the following year, the group's response to a first album themed around athletic virtuosity was, naturally, to take a step back and "think about today's supermarkets and explore these spaces". Supermarket, an album that ponders on "the concept of supermarkets everywhere", finds the band leaving behind the krautrock-influenced sound they'd previously favoured, instead drawing on ambient, swarming electronics to produce a warm, sprawling and unexpected soundtrack to sweeping the aisles.

Supermarket is out on June 17 via Splendour, and check out the video for 'Shopping Trance' below:
