Purity Ring covering Soulja Boi? Um… what? This is actually incredibly catchy and probably my favorite song of the week thus far. This is the first I’ve heard from Purity Ring since the release of their album back in July, and I am very much into it. Released in correspondence with the Grammy’s, “Grammy” (originally from Soulja Boi) is, in a nutshell, a song questioning the basis of the Grammy’s and why they (Purity Ring in this case) didn’t win anything. I 100% agree – Shrines should have won or at least been nominated for Best Dance/Electronica album in my honest opinion. I don’t pay into a lot of what the Grammy’s stand for (although this year was a bit different and a real improvement from recent year’s past i.m.o.) but it’s still heavily biased and so much incredible music goes unnoticed. I do honestly feel Purity Ring are at a place where they should be getting noticed on a bigger scale for what they did this past year. The music industry is ever-changing though so who knows, maybe 2013 will be their year. I can’t wait to see what they do.
