MID-WEEK MUSIC MOMENT: PURITY RING


You can go ahead and put me into the box of "really late to the game" when it comes to electro-pop project Purity Ring. With big beats, synthy sounds and twinkling piano elements, Purity ring sounds to me like a mash-up of MisterWives and MS MR.

That makes my belated enjoyment of their sound even more unreasonable, doesn't it? But nevermind. Purity Ring released their latest album, another eternity, last week, and it's definitely worth a listen. True, a lot of it sounds the same, but the flow of the album is really dreamy which I do not hate—it floats along with a rhythm that makes it hard to tell when one song ends and another begins. There are actually a lot of highlight-worthy songs, including "bodyache" and "repetition," but if you haven't listened to the whole thing yet, let me start you off with one of the last tracks, "sea castle."


The song kind of glides along, then really takes off after about a minute and a half. Enjoy, and check out the rest of the album, too. (Your Wednesday will feel way dreamier, I promise.)
