If you’ve listened to Canadian duo Purity Ring, you’ve likely noticed the hip-hop influence in the indie electro production that Megan James lays her vocals over. If you add Danny Brown into the mix of the buzzed-about band’s unique sound, what do you get? Well, you get a combination that is certainly unexpected, but actually makes sense and is sure to have the blogosphere ablaze. For the sequel to Purity Ring’s “Belispeak,” the second single off of their debut album, Shrines, the duo remixed their own track and acquired some of Brown’s distinct raps. As a result, they’ve created something that should please fans of the original and do a good job of acquiring listeners from a different demographic. Listen to “Belispeak II” above and leave your thoughts on the interesting collaboration below.
