Hear Purity Ring Cover Soulja Boy’s “Grammy”

One listen to Purity Ring‘s hi-hat-heavy Shrines and you could guess that the electronic pop duo could handle a hip-hop cover. Soulja Boy didn’t seem like an obvious choice, but hit play on “Grammy” and it all starts to make sense. The track is one that Purity Ring is familiar with and after several live performances, they decided to take it to the studio. This version finds Megan James at her most accessible, taking on that soaring Ester Dean chorus and Soulja Boy verses with just the right touch of playfulness that gives us a glimpse into a lighter side of Purity Ring that Shrines didn’t showcase.

Download the track and check out tour dates below. Maybe they’ll take on a Based God cover next.
