Today’s Indie: Fineshrine / Purity Ring
‘get a little closer, let it fold / cut open my sternum and pull / my little ribs around you’
Ah here is a good one. Purity Ring has crafted one of the more strangely romantic tracks I have heard in some time, painting a picture of building a fortress for someone inside of yourself, literarily. I love Meghan Jame’s light, almost childlike vocals, eliciting a Crystal Castles, Sleigh Bells, and Grimes type feel, met with tingling builds and a backdrop chorus of coos. The track is off the Canadian electro-pop duo’s full length debut, Shrines, out last week, and all is worth a listen.
And then it was August. #indie/tory
