New Artist: Purity Ring - Ungirthed
Purity Ring is the new side project from Gobble Gobble's Corin Roddick & (former band member) Megan James.
In the unorthodox sounds you'll find expertly sharp synths, break beat style drum patterns and chopped Hip-Hop samples that Jamie xx might be proud of. Add that to James' angelic, innocent vocals and it all together makes for an exceptionally refreshing first listen.
In the words of former colleague Cecil Frena:
"These are synth-warped, minimal, hiphop-inflected pop songs - glowy and irresponsibly hooky."
