Purity Ring

Purity Ring’s Megan James and Corin Roddick have announced their debut EP “Shrines”… Why should you care? Here is why…

Roddick and James have been experimenting with R&B and Hip-Hop beats, deep 90’s influence, and  astonishingly clean soprano vocals to create what is an exciting, fresh and original "future-pop" sound.  Opening for Neon Indian, being named Best New Band by both Pitchfork magazine and New York’s CMJ are just some highlights of the bands overwhelming hype.  Considering the duo has released only 2 singles in the last year, the press and buzz is unbelievable, creating throngs of feverish fans that cannot wait for more.

With “Shrines” dropping in July, a busy summer schedule jet setting around the world and a spot in NXNE’s lineup, the Edmonton natives are undoubtedly an act to see.   Roddick drums live on a custom lights and triggers, as James’ chilling vocals sail sweetly through the air, with  both artists adorned  in original outfits hand-made by James, the experience is nothing short of chilling.

Check them out at NXNE - Wrongbar Thursday, June 14 @ 1AM, be amazed, and pre-order their vinyl available HERE.
