Listen to Purity Ring’s holographic third studio album, ‘WOMB’

'WOMB' signals a new creative direction that fuses the different sounds on Purity Ring's first and second albums.

Ever since Purity Ring gave us Another Eternity, fans have been anticipating the duo’s return for a full five years.  The sophomore release saw Megan James and Corin Roddick push the dark, electro-pop sound they pioneered on their debut LP, Shrines, into a brighter, lighter direction, all the while maintaining their mystical sound. The album was considered a sleeper, which is perhaps why their third full-length, WOMB, took as long as it did.

Arriving as the duo’s third studio effort, WOMB has already seen a slew of early single releases, with “stardew,” “peaceful,” “pink lightning,” and “i like the devil.” With the addition of six more tracks, WOMB signals a new creative direction that fuses the different sounds on Purity Ring’s first and second albums. Equipped with synth-pop atmospheres, holographic landscapes, robust instrumentals, James’ resonant vocals, and light-hearted textures, this is one project that screams Purity Ring through and through.
