Purity Ring to Tour This January
Mon, 15 Oct 2012 09:52:56
Purity Ring's Corin Roddick has reworked their song "Belispeak" to feature a ferocious new verse by Danny Brown. Brown, who first saw Purity Ring on their summer tour, expressed interest in wanting to work with them via Twitter. The two then exchanged ideas through email and Brown reimagined "Belispeak" and its fairy-tale creepiness as an evocative snapshot of his childhood in Detroit, while Roddick reworked the production into a maximalist banger.
In addition, the Canadian duo, rounded out by Megan James, will tour this January.
Purity Ring make lullabies for the club, drawing equally from airy '90s R&B, lush dream pop, and the powerful, bone-rattling immediacy of modern 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.
