Formed in 2010, Canadian electronic band Purity Ring, is a genre-defiant duo that has already built a huge cult following with four singles and have yet to release their first album. Warping up influences from 90’s R&B, Trap, Rape-Gaze and lush dream pop… Corin Roddick’s stunning production and Megan James’ eerie vocals compose disturbing club lullabies that will leave you drifting in a daze.
Purity Ring is a 4AD outfit now, and are set to release their long-awaited LP Shrines, due on July 24. A few days ago they unveiled a new single from this forthcoming album, titled ‘Fineshrine‘, available to download free. This single might be the band’s most wicked song to date, a blood soaked love song referencing relationships with unreturned devoutness.
