Purity Ring      

Electronic Music Duo

Purity Ring is an electro-pop music group comprised of Corin Roddick and Megan James.

The band began when the two were in Canadian indie rock act Gobble Gobble (which later became Born Gold).

Their first song, "Ungirthed," arrived in January 2011 to critical acclaim, and Purity Ring eventually signed with 4AD Records. Shrines, the duo's debut album, was released in July 2012. The following year, Purity Ring collaborated with Danny Brown on the track "25 Bucks."

Their 2015 album, Another Eternity, featured revealing lyrics from James and Roddick's hip-hop-inspired production. Remixes of Mew, HEALTH, and Katy Perry tracks followed, and Purity Ring collaborated with the pop star on three songs from her 2017 album Witness.

In July of 2017 the duo celebrated the fifth anniversary of Shrines' release by issuing the single "Asido" (pronounced "as I do"), which harked back to the body imagery of their debut album.
