Purity Ring have long held a deep obsession with light shows. In fact their live shows are as known for the thousands of tiny globes that adorn their stage as they are for their ethereal electronic music.
Continuing along this grain, they’ve dropped another song from their latest album another eternity and an accompanying video for heartsigh. The video features this familiar light show, essentially mirroring their typical live show. To spice it up a little, they’ve added some cavorting aliens dressed in white, flowing costumes who shadow lead singer Megan James’ every move as well as adding some beautiful shots of the out-of-worldly landscape.
“The video consists of the many elements we have created and chosen to express in a live context, but has an added sightline of being in another world, keeping the past in arms with the present and holding a bit of magic in the dark,” Megan James said in a press release.
The light show features “Submergence”, an art piece from the British collective Squidsoup made up of 2 500 LED lights. Especially look out for Corin Roddick’s pad set fashioned from crystallised flashing lanterns.
Luckily for us, Purity Ring are heading for our shores for a string of festivals and sideshows. They’ll be featuring in Laneway Festival around the country with a Sydney and Melbourne sideshow thrown in for good measure.
