Purity Ring

  • Purity Ring are Corin Roddick and Megan James, an electronic duo from Alberta in Canada.

    Purity Ring’s first album, 2012’s Shrines, was recorded separately in Montreal and Halifax, where Corin and Megan were respectively living at the time. Despite being a thousand kilometres apart, Shrines was a cohesive, beguiling and wholly unique universe of what the band called ‘Future Pop’.

    On Another Eternity, released in 2015, Purity Ring traded the gorgeously claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines for wide-open, muscular vistas of sound and luminous, up-front vocals., crafting a lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by sea castles, rattling spines, and weeping drawers.
