Future pop synth duo Purity Ring will perfom at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Thursday, December 14th. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what was to become their super-tight second album “Another Eternity”, which they produced and recorded themselves. For the first time, vocalist Megan James and producer Corin Roddick were able to create a record in the same room. Their first album “Shrines” was recorded separately in Montreal and Halifax, where Corin and Megan were respectively living at the time.
On “Another Eternity”, Purity Ring trade the gorgeously claustrophobic atmospheres of “Shrines” for wide-open, muscular vistas of sound and luminous, up-front vocals. Crafting a lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines, and weeping drawers, Megan James wields concrete imagery and metaphor with increasingly direct, startling resonance. Corin Roddick’s gifts for evocative melody remain intact, but his drum work and use of space have been completely reforged, immaculately built and focused in service of the song.
Doors 6:00pm / Show 7:00pm
