Purity Ring wears such vivid influences so clearly on their sleeves—808 trunk slap, sweetened up hints of ghost/chill/witchwave, threats of Dutch house, Neo Geo boss-level soundtrack arpeggios—the type of gold standard reference points that when properly worked-in pump up tracks practically too big to fail. Not sure how tall vocalist Megan James really is, but in Purity Ring she sounds near eight feet. A 7-inch split with Braids featuring “Belispeak” comes out October 11th on Fat Possum.
