Purity Ring: Shrines
Beautiful and haunting space-trap
Mixing pop-style vocals with spacey synth tracks and trap music percussion, this band brings a slightly obsessive and twisted vibe to darken otherwise shimmering and pulsing electronic dance music. The production is seriously top-notch, but not necessarily the most memorable album of all time. It’s a good one to play loudly and in a good mood.
