Listen to new Purity Ring song ‘Obedear’

Last year, Purity Ring entered our world with a pretty irresistible piece of gltichy pop called “Ungirthed.” Having the sound of a malfunctioning Sega Genesis game guided by a wide-eyed vocal, it was a refreshingly upbeat alternate to post-dubstep, which uses a similar technique albeit with a bleak overtone.

Purity Ring’s new song “Obedear” doesn’t sound like James Blake but it’s definitely a shade darker. Using the same “Break Out” synth blips, and shifty ambiance, Megan James’ voice captivates in the gothy track, its roots lying in Depeche Mode’s “Violator” with a ’10s delivery.

The duo will be releasing their debut album “Shrines” on July 24 via 4AD and Last Gang.
