“Damaged, hallucinatory pop where bright melodies meet dark images”
The New York Times

“Masters of myth-spinning”
The FADER

“Fresh combination of scalable synth-pop, hip-hop, and Burial-influenced dubstep
— minimally arranged music that still could trigger a festival-ready light show
capable of competing with most EDM acts”

“Creepy and alluring”
Rolling Stone

“Otherworldly”
Stereogum

ABOUT PURITY RING

One night in 2010 Megan was sailing a boat very far out in the ocean. The waves were as big as houses but the moon was full and it was quiet and peaceful. Corin had made a beat in his mum’s basement on his old toshiba laptop and sent it to her, so alone in the water under the bright light, Megan put on her earbuds and sang the words to a song that became ungirthed. Twelve years and a trilogy of albums later, Purity Ring return with their first extended play (graves ep). It is a spirited collection of songs signifying an evolution to a nü era for the Edmonton duo.
