WOMB- Purity Ring
The third album from Purity Ring, WOMB is equal parts rebirth and gore, as the name would suggest. While body horror is nothing new for the band, this album benefits from its thematic focus on revival. The third song on the album, “Peacefall,” says it best as Meagan James closes the song with a soft echo of the lyrics “Into the light.” There are dozens of metaphors surrounding growth and change including climbing a mountain, blooming and night turning into day, making this album an English major’s daydream. For the rest of us this album is perfect for welcoming in the change of seasons.
