better late than never: “obedear” – purity ring

I have no idea what took me so long to click play on this new track from Purity Ring.  But don’t let my mistake become yours, because the synth beats of “Obedear”  are ready take you to another place.

Prior to “Obedear,” the Halifax/Montreal based duo –  Corin Roddick and Megan James – had only released three tracks, all to critical acclaim.  Give an listen to any of those songs over at their Soundcloud and it’s easy to hear why.

Now, Purity Ring will be releasing their debut album, Shrines, via 4AD on July 24th [pre-order], and if “Obedear” is any indication, it’s likely a Best of 2012 contender.

You can stream the track the below, or grab the mp3 courtesy of 4AD.

Purity Ring – Obedear (mp3)

Beautiful yet ambiguous lyric: “Don’t just wander back and forth and leave it / Build it into pinnacles and shrines of some / Some ghastly predicament in mind”
