Purity Ring - Womb Album Review


It's been five years since Canadian electronic duo Purity Ring released their second album Another Eternity, but little has changed in terms of their overall sound and macabre lyrical themes now that they are here with album three: Womb.

Purity Ring - Womb Album Review

Those breathy treble vocals are still centre-stage, though they've been transformed by a heavier use of vocal effects; that coupled with the expansive, dreamy sounds and lyrical repetition throughout gives the whole thing an echo chamber vibe - Womb really was an excellent choice of title for this record.

As the annual South by Southwest festival heats up over there in Austin, Texas, we’ve cast a jealous eye over the line-up and picked out five of some of the bigger names that you really should start queuing nice and early for and thrown in five hype bands for you, too, so you can get all hip with your friends, upon your return and start laying down all those “saw them first lines,” when they blow up next year.

First up, the acts that have already broken, that you really need to check out, or at least pretend that you did, if you were stuck in that queue for BBQ wings…

1. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – their ‘Thrift Shop’ song really blew up, especially online, where they challenged Carly Rae Jepsen’s chart record for ‘Call Me Maybe.’ No one can predict whether or not Macklemore’s going to be a one hit wonder or whether he’s got more up his sleeve, he’s known for putting on a good show, and all six of their shows are likely to be rammed.
