In association with Laneway Presents & Noisey.
PURITY RING, the Canadian duo comprising vocalist Megan James and producer/synth wizard Corin Roddick, are enjoying a huge 2015. Their stellar second album Another Eternity (4AD), has been all over the radio, and helped them sell out shows worldwide and spellbind audiences on late-night TV.
Surely one of the most exciting live propositions around right now, PURITY RING’s show is highly original. Corin plays a custom-made synth/percussion gizmo that doubles as a light show, and Megan designs all of their onstage getup. Prepare for a complete sensory experience when PURITY RING hit the stage at their Laneway sideshow this year.
Joining them on the bill are the otherworldly MAJICAL CLOUDZ. The minimal synth/vocal project of Montreal local Devon Welsh and multi-instrumentalist Matthew Otto, the Cloudz are one of those rare acts that have the power to make you laugh, cry, fall deeply in love and have your heart savagely broken all in the space of one set. LP Are You Alone?, the follow up to 2013’s brilliant Impersonator came out last week and is already looking to be one this year’s word-of-mouth favourites.
