Purity Ring – Bodyache (Born Gold Remix)

April 16, 2015

It’s no surprise to me, but in my opinion, Purity Ring’s sophomore album, Eternity, stands as one of the best albums of the year so far, if not the top champion. There are countless amazing tracks on the release that I love, and I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite, but Bodyache is certainly one of the top three. For a more dizzying take on the track, we turn to Canada’s Born Gold, who never fails at bringing plenty of busy, enthralling elements in his neofolk and experimental electronic music. This remix is pure psychedelic, heady bliss.

Purity Ring – Bodyache

February 26, 2015

Purity Ring just revealed another new track off their sophomore album another eternity, and new Purity Ring demands immediate attention! Bodyache is a light and airy gem that sparkles gently and exquisitely. Punctuated with pulses of intensity, it’s one of the Canadian act’s most breezy and weightless treats yet. Megan’s voice is as enchanting as ever. I can’t wait for another eternity, just like I couldn’t wait for their debut album Shrines back a few years ago. It’s out March 3rd on Last Gang / 4AD.  

Purity Ring – Begin Again

January 13, 2015

I need jump back on to share one more item tonight. It’s a must share. I’m tired, it’s been a long day, I just had a late dinner, and I’m ready to chill out for the rest of my Monday, but I’m suddenly energized and bewitched. Purity Ring just revealed a new track off their coming sophomore album Another Eternity, out March 3 via 4AD / Last Gang Records. Begin Again is a wintry, chilly electronic/future pop treat and it follows on the heels of brilliant  Push Pull. Begin Again is spellbinding, dark, and haunting, the epitome of what we’ve come to expect and love so dearly about the Canadian duo, though perhaps a touch less ethereal and gossamer. Also not as choppy and glitchy than some of their other tunes, Begin Again leans a little closer to the kind of electropop I love from CHVRCHES. It’s just as glorious and signifies a coming album that will vary in sound.

Purity Ring – Push Pull

December 4, 2014

I thought I was done for the moment, then I saw something spectacular, and I’m not done. Not by a mile. Kids, behold… NEW PURITY RING! I’ve been regularly wondering what the Canadian electropop duo has been up to and when we’ll ever hear anything new from them. Their 2012 debut album Shrines is one of my favorites of that year. In my opinion, it was a groundbreaking release that extensively influenced a lot of the future pop and electronic pop we’ve been hearing since its release. Tonight is a wonderful night, because we get to listen to Push Pull, Megan and Corin’s new enchanting song. We’re used to Purity Ring being both gorgeous and haunting, and that still rings (pun intended) so incredibly true on Push Pull. The lyrics aren’t as cryptic and mysterious as some of their other songs, but there’s still some great word play. Welcome back, Purity Ring. I look forward to a new flurry of magical music.

Los Angeles R&B pop artist Elijah Blake just caught my attention quickly and efficiently. How? By releasing a tune, titled Give Me U, that’s produced by Corin Roddick, one half of Canadian future pop duo Purity Ring, whom I’m kind of missing right now, since they’ve been on the quiet side of things for awhile now. I sure hope they’re making new music, but in the meantime, this Elijah Blake collaboration is pretty dang awesome, with its grandiose, magnificent electronic production and Elijah’s passionate, strong vocals. It’s a vivid, explosive song that reminds me of some of BANKS’ music, though less dark and haunting. Hey, why hasn’t Purity Ring and BANKS teamed up for anything yet? Huh? Huh?

Danny Brown x Purity Ring

September 30, 2013

For all of those out there who long ago figured out Canadian future pop duo Purity Ring’s electronic production would work wonders soundtracking hip hop, today’s your day. Detroit hip hop artist Danny Brown dropped his third studio album Old, and it features some sweet collaborations, including 25 Bucks with Purity Ring! The haunting, dark beats are deliciously sinister and easily take the limelight in my books. Danny Brown’s flow is dope too, but I’m first and foremost a Purity Ring fan. This isn’t the first time the two have worked together on a track. Close to a year ago, Purity Ring remixed their own stunning tune Belispeak. The remix featured Danny Brown. I suppose the seeds of 25 Bucks may have been sowed then. Revisit Belispeak II below 25 Bucks.

(NSFW) OFFICIAL VID: Jon Hopkins – Breathe This Air feat. Purity Ring

September 26, 2013

One of my favorite collaborations of the past several months is certainly this one between UK producer Jon Hopkins and Canadian future pop duo Purity Ring. Breathe This Air is an immaculate song, filled with a delicate beauty and siren like vocals, as well as Hopkins’ incredible, textured, raw production. I was just revisiting this track last night on my Burning Man playlist and thoroughly enjoying it. Today sees the release of the music video for the track that represents the different facets of the song by transposing the violent act of hunting next to the beauty of a naked woman bathing nearby.
