Purity Ring - Fineshrine

This duo never cease to amaze me and from the 'on repeat' buzz that follows with each development, everyone else for that matter.

Below is their latest release in the build up to the album 'Shrines'. It is a similar sound to other tracks we've heard, but still different in its own right. Anyone who says every track sounds the same is wrong; Purity Ring have found a niche and made themselves very well acquainted with it, utilising their discovered capability to make new and beautiful music, whilst pioneering the way for others.

The Killers: Battle Born Teaser

Above is the preview/teaser trailer to The Killers new album 'Battle Born' which is set to be released this autumn (Fall for anyone stateside).

The trailer does not give away much, but instead keeps you guessing. Is this an album intro, ready to burst into 'Hot Fuss' era indie rock and roll as I've been informed? Or will we be presented with a synth saturated electropop style album later this year? Either would be well received I'm sure.

Hopefully I will be treated to some of the new material when I see them in August at V Festival.

This is cool.

Cry Wolf - Killin' It (Krewella Cover)

It is a cover of 'Krewella - Killin it' and it could not be further from the original, but stripped down to basics it works so well.
