Purity Ring - Official 'stardew' Video Out Now
Purity Ring : Official 'stardew' Video Out Now
7th May 2020

Today, Purity Ring release the otherworldly video for 'stardew' directed by life-size stop motion artist Tobias Stretch with costumes created by Purity Ring’s Megan James.  The track, which is off the duo’s recently released LP WOMB, was praised as “pulsating” by Billboard, a “crystalline rush of adrenaline” by The FADER and “a treat” by Consequence of Sound.

WOMB debuted at #1 on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart and top 20 on seven Billboard charts.  The ten songs are entirely written, recorded, produced and mixed by the duo of James and Corin Roddick, and the album chronicles a quest for comfort and the search for a resting place in a world where so much is beyond our control.

WOMB is available digitally, on CD and standard back vinyl. Limited color vinyl options available via the Purity Ring store & 4AD Store (violet), Vinyl Me Please (grey & white marbled), and independent record shops (opaque red).

WOMB

 "WOMB is some of Purity Ring’s strongest work, a confident and singular statement from a band often imitated over the past decade.” - Pitchfork
"Maybe the otherworldly sounds of Purity Ring are precisely what we need to escape into right about now." - The FADER
Brims with textured electro-pop as crystalline and vast as that of the band’s previous LPs.” - AV Club
The duo’s new album WOMB is probably their most beguiling to date; it’s a twisted comfort blanket of a record weaved with a wider variety of sonic textures than in the past.” - DAZED
In these dark days, we need to find comfort in small joys.  Purity Ring’s third album is a shimmering escape, and as good a self-isolation soundtrack as you’re likely to find” - Loud & Quiet (8/10)
