Purity Ring "Belispeak"
For a reference point, new band Purity Ring are hopping on board a tour with Neon Indian and Com Truise, so people familiar with those two bands will have a good guess at their sound. For those unfamiliar with the aforementioned bands, each are heavy on 80’s nostaliga, channeled mostly through pristine pop music, vocal effects and synth tomfoolery. On the new Purity Ring 7″, the shimmering pop of “Belispeak,” the group show similar chops and clearly are up to the task of shouldering the weight of pop music of days gone by as easily as their two tour mates. Check out the track below and if you are intrigued, check them out Oct. 13th at the First Avenue Mainroom.
