Purity Ring - 'Shrines' (album stream)
By Josiah HughesThough they were born out of renowned Edmontonian party pop crew Born Gold, duo Purity Ring have carved out their own niche and, in the process, a worldwide fanbase. That's why their debut album Shrines is, to say the least, a pretty big deal.

The album will officially drop on July 24 via Last Gang/4AD, but we've arranged a stream of the entire album.

Many of these tracks, including the band's career-making "Ungirthed" and "Belispeak" singles, have been previously released, but there's a lot of fantastic new material to dig into as well, including the enormous mid-tempo opener "Crawlersout" and the warped sing-along "Amenamy."

While they definitely sound post-something, whether that something is dubstep or witch house, there's something much bigger going on with Purity Ring. It doesn't just sound like something new -- it sounds like the future of pop music.

Check out Shrines in its entirety below and head here for the band's upcoming North American tour dates. Also, head here to pre-order the album on vinyl, here for CD and here for iTunes.
