    Purity Ring - "bodyache"

    On their new album Another Eternity, Purity Ring didn't stray far from the path they started on a few years ago. Megan James' saccharine vocals and Corin Roddick's forward-thinking electronic production are still the two main ingredients.

    It feels a little less game-changing than on their 2012 debut, but the standouts on this album showcase Purity Ring as more than a niche indie electronic pop act. These days, they're a professional duo able to balance inventive style with a broader appeal. "bodyache" may not be a Top 40 hit, but it's more polished than anything the group has done, and that chorus is pop perfection. Don't be surprised if you see a Purity Ring chart-topper in 2018.—Confusion
