Purity Ring / Braids

Released: 10/11/2011

Catalog #: FP1256

  • 7" Vinyl $ 3.50 - $ 5.00
Purity Ring and Braids, two Canadian bands that heavily feature electronics, have teamed up for a 7” to coincide with their fall touring schedules. Though the bands won’t be together on the road, they each have “favorited” the others’ music with plans of this release. 
Purity Ring exploded onto the Web earlier this year with their debut release, a 7” on Transparent Records that sold out quickly. This is the third song the duo has released and it features everything that made “Ungirthed” and “Lofticries” great: soaring pitch-shifted vocals, skittering hi-hats, deep kicks, odd arrangements and synths that breathe. 
Braids debuted early this year on Kanine Records with Native Speaker, an album full of lush sonics made familiar by bands like Deerhunter and Animal Collective, but with female vocals. “Peach Wedding” weighs in a similar aesthetic and an epic performance.
