The highly anticipated sophomore effort from Purity Ring is here! Canadian duo Corin Roddick and Megan James (aka Purity Ring) made huge waves in 2012 with their breakout debut Shrines and follow it with an expansive ocean of sound Another Eternity. It's evident that Roddick and James have grown immensely in their confidence and skill within the three years between these albums as the sounds contained within are huge! Gone are the claustrophobic atmospheres of Shrines, swapped for expansive beats and widescreen sonic landscapes. It might've helped that the two were actually able to produce and record in the same room, this first time they've been able to do this since.. well, forever. Check the sound on the infectious "Body Ache," the heavy and heartfelt "Repetition," "Begin Again," and the intense "Flood On The Floor." while Corin lays down epic beats and melodies, while Megan's voice stays sharp and emotive throughout. 10 tracks in all on limited clear vinyl, download included.
