Trends that Purity Ring continue with the release of this song:

  • Seriously awesome song names. You’re looking at an elevation of the titling game.
  • Dark, dark sounds
  • Despite the near-gothic synths, extremely immediate songs that stick with you
  • Drums that put some of the best dirty south hip-hop producers to shame
  • Unexpected song releases
  • Unexpectedly having that new song on repeat for, presumably, the next few days
  • Mounting excitement for that 7/24 album release date (it’s going to be called “Shrines”)
  • Lyrics that seem inscrutably personal
  • Forcing me to briefly consider whether it’s ridiculous to like a band this much¬†after just a handful of songs
  • A 100% record on putting out great music
