This week marks the release of Shrines, the debut album by Canadian duo Purity Ring. The record’s 11 tracks trace a unique aesthetic universe that is carefully crafted & fully realized, deftly walking the lines between trap-rap exhilaration & airy 90s R&B, lush dream pop & the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of modern hip hop. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once ecstatic & ethereal, soaring joyfully through Corin’s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, & skewed vocal samples. It’s hardly surprising, then, that Shrines feels like anything but a 1st record.
Get the LP now on iTunes & grab a new remix that VS//YOUTHCLUB did for “Belispeak”. The band will be touring N. America throughout August & September. All dates after the free remix.
