It feels like we’ve been waiting eons for Purity Ring’s album Shrines.
If you’re scratching your head because you’ve never heard of them, please waste no time and dive right in. Purity Ring is easily one of the most buzzworthy bands of 2012 and will undoubtedly be plastered across the editorial blogosphere’s Best Of The Year music lists.
The group (comprised of beat-maker Corin, 21 and vocalist Megan, 24) is talented well beyond their years. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once ecstatic and ethereal, soaring joyfully through Corin’s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, and skewed vocal samples.
Check out the album here – and while you’re at it, bask in this eccentric playlist which the two have put together exclusively for Spotify.
