“Lofticries” is today’s song of the day and is off of Purity Ring’s magnificent album Shrines. Many of their songs use hip hop inspired beat foundations, upon which they then layer their vocals and electronic inspired floating melodies. In this track though the beat’s foundation is more electronic to begin with, and upon it they build with dark and brooding sounds & voices. Either way they have mixed something dark with something energetic and reaching, but just in a different manner.
The momentarily loses of energy, upon which scattered sounds quickly rebuild and then hit with the beat, one has to love those. They have so much going on, yet everything is still flowing in the same direction. It’s utterly fantastic. May it endow your Saturday with relentless energy. Enjoy.
