It’s not my first time to loop a song from Purity Ring. Back when the Canadian duo released their debut album Shrines in 2012, I was totally digging “Fineshrine”. It’s cool, dark and completely hypnotic. It’s also not your typical love song with lyrics like get a little closer, let fold / cut open my sternum, and pull / my little ribs around you / the rungs of me be under you (don’t you just love it when lyrics are borderline creepy yet super metaphoric – kinda like Alt-J’s you’re a shark and I’m swimming). For their sophomore album, they give us a taste with “Push Pull” – a track that doesn’t alienate its already existing fans but also doesn’t bore them.
