I’ve blogged before about the general wonderousness of Purity Ring.
Their latest single is well up to their usual high standards and offers typically off kilter dream pop; all mysteriously murmured vocals, esoteric lyrics and hooks. The cavernous bass sounds excellent through a decent sub-woofer so remember to play loud. Get it now as a free download from their website.
It’s great to see that the long-awaited debut album Shrines will be out on 24 July and is being released by indie legends 4AD. They were always a classic label who had the coolest music, and best design so that seems like a perfect fit. The equally exciting Grimes is a label mate and having been at the forefront of the best indie (Pixies, Mountain Goats, etc) they are cornering the market in experimental dance music.
