Purity Ring is one duo that has stayed on our radar since our (and their) earliest beginnings. Today, they announce their next body of work, an EP titled Graves, which is set to be the first official release from their new record label, The Fellowship. The title track from the EP has been released today as well.
Specialists in spacey, dreamy melodies, Purity Ring begin “Graves” with a lovely piano line that evolves into a mid-tempo rhythm. Megan James then comes in with her signature vocals, which will whisk you away into another ethereal plane. The tune ultimately gives way to a gorgeous hook that reintroduces the piano from the beginning, along with some additional percussion.
According to Megan, they’ve been sitting on this new track for eight years:
This song has been haunting us for 8 straight years so we’re very glad to let it be heard. We hope it brings you as much joy as it has now brought us. Thank you for listening and please enjoy the beautiful music video about human cells.
You can listen to the “Graves” by Purity Ring below. The EP is due out on June 3. Enjoy!
