[new]: Purity Ring – Begin Again

By Will Oliver, January 19th 2015

Purity Ring

It’s been three years since Purity Ring released their highly celebrated debut album Shrines. Well, they’re back, announcing that their new album Another Eternity will be released on March 3 via 4AD. Megan James and Corin Roddick recorded the record in Edmonton, Alberta, making it the first time that they were able to record a record together in the same room.

Recently released new single “Begin Again” features glittery synth-work and heavy hitting beats that lay a solid foundation for the wondrous vocals of James to take over. It’s a great follow-up to the previously released album cut “Push Pull,” which was slightly more pop-oriented.

Stream both “Begin Again” and “Push Pull” below.

Purity Ring was a late add for Mountain Oasis and I was very happy when they were announced the “replacement” act. Megan James sounded great, and it was enhanced because the USCC has amazing acoustics.

Corin drums on these light contraptions that are a part of both the set up of their show as well as the musical skeleton of the songs. About three quarters of the way through the set Megan urged everyone to dance even harder. No problem, the place was moving.

Check out some more photos from Purity Ring’s set below.

Dre Skull – First Time (feat. Megan James from Purity Ring)

By Will Oliver, April 11th 2013 — with 2 comments

Dre Skull is a Brooklyn producer who has collaborated with the likes of Major Lazer and Snoop Dogg (I’m ignoring the Lion title on purpose!). He has teamed up with Megan James, the wondrous voice of Purity Ring for a new track called “First Time” that also features Popcaan.

It’s a cool chance to hear her vocals outside of the Purity Ring spectrum and it works quite well.

Purity Ring @ Pitchfork Music Festival (July 13, 2012)

By Will Oliver, July 18th 2012 — with 1 comment

Purity Ring took the stage at the same time as Feist (who I already saw at Bonnaroo). The band is young, and definitely has some fine tuning to do, but they held their own. Their cool hypnotic style of electronic witchery was perfect for the oncoming nightfall.

A hip light display hovered of the duo, while Megan James mostly kept in the shadows, letting her voice act as their guiding light. Their debut album Shrines drops on 4AD next week (July 24) and is a strong start to their career. While their live show isn’t perfect, it’s one to stay patient with. They are young, and destined to improve with every move.
