Purity Ring is a Halifax/Montreal-based duo comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James.
After more than five years, Purity Ring will release their third album WOMB in 2020. The album is entirely written, recorded, produced and mixed by the duo of Megan James and Corin Roddick. WOMB chronicles a quest for comfort and the search for a resting place in a world where so much is beyond our control. Lead single ‘stardew’ is a glittering, transcendent invitation to “just be where you are” – to experience the kind of powerful peace that can only be found by truly coming home.
WOMB follows Purity Ring’s 2012 internationally-acclaimed and highly influential debut Shrines and 2015’s another eternity. On another eternity, The New York Times praised the songs as “only a few steps removed from radio hits by singers like Ariana Grande and Ellie Goulding” while Rolling Stone called them “lustrous synth pop plus cavernous hip hop” and The New Yorker lauded the duo for “creat[ing] electro-pop that is as warm and human as it is cold and alien, an intoxicating combination that feels boldly futuristic.” In support of the album, the band performed on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Conan and the outdoor stage of Jimmy Kimmel Live!
