Purity Ring: I Like The Devil

The electro-pop duo returns with a cut featuring a synth-y soundscape, clear vocals, and goth-tinged lyrics.

Purity Ring: I Like The Devil

By Kerry Doole

Purity Ring -  I Like The Devil (4 AD): It has been five years since Purity Ring's last album Another Eternity, so there is real anticipation about the release of a new record, WOMB, today (April 3).


I Like The Devil is the album’s final pre-release single, following the cuts Stardew, Peacefall and Pink Lightning.

The Canadian electro-pop duo comprises Megan James and Corin Roddick. On this track, James' clear vocals sit neatly atop a keyboards-heavy soundscape, to appealing effect, while the lyrics have a goth-accent – “lurk within her gleaming silhouette then seal in our wonder to ferment."

The synth-pop glut of the past decade may be fading, but Purity Ring has the talent to go the distance. 

The band’s early summer North American tour dates have been postponed due to COVID-19, but  European tour dates are still skedded, for now at least.

Usher Takes Fans Behind-The-Scenes of 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show in Apple Music Mini-Doc

The 10-minute film was shot on an iPhone 15.

Usher pulls back the curtain on the intense prep he did for his 2024 Apple Music Super Bowl LVIII halftime show in a new mini-doc that dropped over the weekend. The nearly 11-minute black and white film was shot entirely on an iPhone 15 Pro by director Mike Carson.

“I think everybody is blessed with a talent and a time,” Usher says at the top of the film amid images of the intense dance rehearsals for the 13-minute run through the singer’s legendary catalog. “If you put in the work, people will respect what you do.” What follows is black and white footage of Ush perfecting his dance moves while subtly tweaking the vocals on some of his biggest hits to make sure fans get the ultimate experience.
