9/10 John Lewis Customer review, 16th September 2015
4AD, drum machines, ethereal vocals - no it's not those foul mouthed Twins sparking a revival those beautiful ethereal sounds that brought tears to many a grown mans eye. It's those mischievous Canadian playthings Purity Ring, and a very fine album it is too. While the wonderful "Bodyache " is still one of my favourite songs of the year, the whole album is dazzling and can spin you into an orbit of glacial escape as blissful sitting on the peak of a snow capped mountain. The mix of electronic sounds and evocative vocals gives the albums depth that many of their contempories can only strive for. At times the synth pop arrangements evoke the sounds of Depeche Mode and then we jump to the ambient dance sounds of Orbital, but those beautiful, almost child like vocals, maintain the intrigue and glitter above the beats. A dance pop beauty of an album. Hear Bodyache, Heartsigh and explore the sounds of Purity Ring.
