Purity Ring Release New Track ‘Obedear,’ Info on Debut LP

'Shrines' is due July 24

Shortly after midnight, crafty electro-pop duo Purity Ring pointed Twitter followers to their website,
where they unveiled “Obedear,” a new, synth-soaked cut from their forthcoming debut full-length.

Dubbed Shrines, the record is slated to be released by 4AD and Last Gang on July 24, nearly 10 months after the pair first earned buzz for two singles they released online. “Obedeear” finds vocalist Megan James’ honeyed vocals spliced together with rumbling baritone, sporadic plinks and low, ghostly moans — the same hiccuping
torrent that marked its aforementioned (and haunting) predecessors, “Belispeak” and “Ungirthed.” Listen to the track below or over at Purity Ring’s web site.
