The chilly electro-pop project of Corin Roddick and Megan James, Purity Ring began when the two were in Canadian indie rock act Gobble Gobble (which later became Born Gold). While the band was on tour, Roddick and James grew increasingly inspired by the sounds of contemporary R&B and wanted to make music reflecting that. Their first song, "Ungirthed," arrived in January 2011 to critical acclaim, and Purity Ring eventually signed with 4AD Records. Shrines, the duo's debut album, was released in July 2012.
In this Montreal indie electro duo, Megan James sings while Corin Roddick plays an instrument shaped like a tree of lights. The latter is an appropriate metaphor for their eccentric, fairytale world, which mixes 80s synthesiser pop swirls with plinky-plonky beats, shimmering, ghostly textures and odd but catchy tunes. Like 4AD predecessor Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins, James appears to have crafted her own language in songs given titles such as Lofticries and Belispeak. Listen closely and it makes sense: Crawlersout ("they'll sew their own hands into their beds and keep the crawlers out") seems to be a chirpy anthem about arachnophobia. In Ungirthed, we're told how "prostrate men … illuminate the worlds of the ghosts" over tunes which are like weird distortions of mainstream pop songs. The sumptuous, Young Magic-sampling Grandloves could be a distant relative of Art of Noise's Madonna-favoured Moments in Love. Whatever it all means, it's delivered with a joyous glee, and anyone searching for a more electro-based companion to Grimes' Visions need look no further.
