Canadian duo Megan James and Corin Roddick, aka Purity Ring, return with a second album, entitled 'Another Eternity'. Their breakthrough 2012 debut 'Shrines' was in many ways a prescient suggestion of indie and popular music to come. While 'Shrines' was composed remotely between Halifax and Montreal, 'Another Eternity' marks the first time Megan and Corin were able to create a record in the same room. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what would become the album. Megan and Corin recorded and produced their follow-up themselves, as always. With 'Another Eternity' Purity Ring trade the claustrophobic atmospheres of 'Shrines' for wide-open expanses of sound. Between the brooding anthem 'Begin Again', the infectious 'Bodyache' and the time-suspending 'Stillness in Woe', the emotional geography of 'Another Eternity' is wider than ever: gloomy valleys and gleaming peaks in equal measure. Megan James' vocals are in sharper focus as she details her lyrical universe of "sweat and dreams" populated by seacastles, rattling spines and weeping drawers. Corin Roddick's gift for evocative melody remains intact but his percussive skills and use of space have been refined and honed.
