Purity Ring reveal Soulja Boy cover + Tour

Purity announce 4ad record, share video

Purity Ring has announced their third North American tour in support of their 4AD debut Shrines. The Halifax/Montreal-based duo is comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James. They make lullabies for the club, drawing equally from airy 90s R&B, lush dream pop, and the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of hip hop. Megan’s remarkable voice is at once both ecstatic and ethereal, soaring wistfully above Corin’s intricately chopped drum programming, trembling sub-bass, and skewed vocal samples.

On their January tour, Purity Ring surprised everyone with a rousing cover of Soulja Boy & Ester Dean’s “Grammy”. Upon wrapping up tour two weeks ago, the band recorded the cover, which can be streamed or downloaded here:
