Tracks: PURITY RING – Obedear

April 24, 2012

Every so often a song comes along that speaks to you like no other; such is the case with the new single from Edmonton electro-pop outfit Purity Ring. To be completely honest, I’ve played this track five times in a row and it doesn’t show any signs of letting up.

Now that I have your attention, check out Obedear in the embed below and head over to their website to download it for free. The song will be included on their forthcoming debut album, Shrines, due for release on July 24th via 4AD and Last Gang.

For more on Purity Ring, show them some love over on Facebook.
