Purity Ring

Two words: Purity Ring.

This artistic Canadian duo, Megan James (vocals) and Corin Roddick (instrumentals), sure bring a lot to the table. Creating light and electronic/synthpop sounds with the use of a very cool and unique tree-shaped instrument, this pair sure aim to deliver.

Purity Ring remind me a lot of the Naked and Famous for their similar vocals and upbeat tracks. Despite only hitting the music scene in 2010 Purity Ring have come along way. Last month (July) the duo released their debut album "Shrines," which reached #2 in the US dance/electronic Albums Chart. The album includes the fantastic released singles "Fineshrine" and "Obedear."
