On March 3, Canadian synth-pop duo Purity Ring will release their second album, Another Eternity, via 4AD. The album follows 2012’s Shrines, and the band has already released a couple songs from the album, including “Push Pull” and “Begin Again.” And if that whet your appetite for ethereal, mystical, synth-driven beatscapes, then clear out some time this afternoon, because NPR First Listen is hosting a stream of Another Eternity, just a little under a week before it’s being officially released. In early listens, the album sounds like the next logical step for Corin Roddick and Megan James — a little bigger, a little darker, and a bit more sophisticated than before.
