Purity Ring

Purity Ring

Tuesday, Aug 23

It will take you approximately seven minutes to listen to pop-chillwave duo Purity Ring’s entire recorded discography. That won’t be the end of your Purity Ring listening experience though, because their single “Ungirthed” and its b-side “Lofticries” will most likely have you hitting the repeat button. These morphing synthesizer tracks—half way between Lali Puna’s electro-indie sound and Com Truise’s inter-galactic, tone melting mid-fi (Com Truise will jump onto the second half of the band’s tour along with Neon Indian)—are instantly appealing. But will the project—started by Corin Roddick of noise-pop outfit Gobble Gobble and female vocalist Megan James—be able to sustain their instantly appealing sound on a full-length record format? Only time will tell, but don’t miss this opportunity to catch Purity Ring at Mohawk Place while they’re still firmly planted in the underground. Like-minded Buffalo based dance duo Love Scenes open the show with indie-rockers Early Attic on Tuesday (Aug 23). —cory perla
