PURITY RING (Canada)
Guests: Headaches (USA) + Fishing
Canada’s Purity Ring is one of the most intriguing new acts in left field pop. Just announced for Golden Plains in March, the duo will bring their otherworldly rapture to this show. Corin Roddick and Megan James formed Purity Ring in 2010. Midway through 2012, they released their debut record ‘Shrines’, introducing the world to their eerie, inviting universe. The duo make lullabies for the club, drawing equally from airy ‘90s R&B, lush dream pop, and the immediacy of modern hip hop. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once ecstatic and ethereal, soaring joyfully through Corin’s carefully chopped beats, trembling synths, and skewed vocal samples. Purity Ring enthrals their audience with a carefully considered live show formed around a dynamic lighting rig. Built by Corin himself, it literally brings the music to life, as a web of futuristic coloured orbs light up and dim according to his improvisational live production techniques. Guaranteed to inspire non-stop head bobbing, prepare to be hypnotized by this aural and visual wonder.
