After releasing Progress last October under her Princess Century moniker, Toronto's Maya Potepski has announced a new three-song EP, featuring tracks that didn't make the full-length LP.

Due out March 25 on Paper Bag Records, Rendezvous finds the Austra member and former other half of TRUST exploring bigger melodies and more aggressive rhythms, while containing references to her previous electronic projects.

"Rendezvous is an EP comprised of tracks that are a departure from what I normally do," explains Postepski in a press release. "The tracks didn't quite work on the album, but I felt they shared a weird Krauty EDM vibe. The artwork was done by Faye and Gina in Paris. I love the concept they tied in with the single, "Rendezvous": a meeting with someone that is arranged for a particular time and place and that is often secret."

She's also shared the EP's first track, "Robbers," which features an infectious bending and buzzing bass line that growls away under glistening synth chords, suggesting fuzzy memories of classic trance.
