Purity Ring

Purity Ring - Fineshrine
Purity Ring - Belispeak

Eclectronic-pop darlings Purity Ring have crafted a gem of a full length with their upcoming Shrines LP - and its got everything yer little hearts might desire (no matter who you are), including a staggering amount of weirdo beat combinations and wonky, off-kilter tempo changes usually reserved for, and often only found on, less accessible-ish concept albums by lonely bedroom producers (not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, just so you know). Plus! Overlapping choruses of gorgeous baby-doll vocal melodies, oddball portmanteau lingo and linguistic blends/bends (as evidenced by their song titles), and enough atmospheric acrobatics and digital beat intricacies to completely satisfy even the pickiest of listeners. Drool.

Highly recommended.

Shrines will be released on July 24th, courtesy of 4AD
