Purity Ring - Official 'heartsigh' Video
Purity Ring : Official 'heartsigh' Video
14th December 2015

Today, Purity Ring release their video for 'heartsigh' directed by Cecil Frena & Alex Fischer. 

The video explores the incredible futuristic live visuals the band have become known for.  Impressively, the band designed the stage show/music video themselves--including the band's costumes & Corin Roddick's custom, state-of-the-art crystal mallet synth.  In addition, the show/video incorporates an art installation called Submergence by the British art collective Squidsoup, which utilizes over 2,500 immersive & interactive LED lights.  The video also features choreography from L.A. based dancer Juliette Irons.  Last weekend, the band wrapped up an intense year of touring, playing to over 4,000 people at a headlining show at Los Angeles’ Shrine Expo Hall.

Singer Megan James said "it was an honest collaboration that combined the ideas of the band with the talents of the directors, dancers and crew.  The video consists of the many elements we have created and chosen to express in a live context, but has an added sightline of being in another world, keeping the past in arms with the present and holding a bit of magic in the dark."

Cecil Frena, the director, explains "Purity Ring are unsung visual artists in their own right, so Alex and I just did what we could to capture and situate the universe they've created. Also we left some chemtrails for the scifi nerds in here.”
