Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring was formed in 2010 by Megan James (vocals) and Corin Roddick (instruments). His music features influences from styles like dream pop, R&B and hip hop. In 2011, the band released the singles "Ungirthed" and "Belispeak", which were well received by critics.
In April 2012, the duo signed with 4AD records, which released their first album, Shrines, in July of the same year. The second, Another Eternity, came out in 2015. Purity Ring returned in 2020 with a new album, entitled Womb.
