Electronic song from Purity Ring – “Asido”

Purity Ring – Asido from Purity Ring YouTube


From Pitchfork.com:

“Released to commemorate the fifth anniversary of Purity Ring’s debut album Shrines, “Asido” finds the Canadian synthpop duo preoccupied as ever with the body. Singer Megan James waxes poetic about “Your fortuitous spine/Opened up like a marionette,” and “How my tongue dried into the dust/How my skin willed a lie.” Like she did on Shrines standouts “Fineshrine” and “Lofticries,” James maps the surrealist drama of her lyrics onto the human form, making anatomy into landscape and landscape into anatomy until the two are indistinguishable.

At the chorus, though, James drops her metaphor and transitions to a blunt, bare injunction: “Feel as lonely as I do.” Behind her voice, producer Corin Roddick strips away some of Purity Ring’s softer flourishes, supplying a lean, uneasy backbeat in their place. Instead of bringing the electronics to a head for the chorus, Roddick dims them, letting James’s command (which sounds like a fragment until you realize she’s telling you to feel) cut cleanly through the song’s atmosphere. The melodies in the verses fall gently, despite their strange, idiosyncratic lyrics, but the chorus stings in its simplicity. James draws the listener in, not asking you to share in her loneliness but demanding it.”

Purity Ring – Asido Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
From a black widow’s reckoning
Your fortuitous spine
Opened up like a marionette
Danced a whimsical pride
Lend a hand to the silver blade
Stir your gut ’til it pours
Fill our cups with profanity
‘Til the earth is stained orange

[Pre-Chorus]
How my tongue dried into the dust
How my skin willed a lie
Drill a hole in the field
Just the size of my thighs

[Chorus]
Feel as lonely as I do
Feel as lonely as I do
Feel as lonely as I do, as I do
Feel as lonely as I do, I do

[Verse 2]
Dried up seeds neath our parting seas
Floating pears on the tide
Slow motion to drown me
Roaming streams from our eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
How my tongue dried into the dust
How my skin willed a lie
Drill a hole in the field
Just the size of my thighs

[Chorus]
Feel as lonely as I do
Feel as lonely as I do
Feel as lonely as I do, as I do
Feel as lonely as I do, I do

[Bridge]
Hold the pain in a soft crux
With our palms facing up
Push it thoroughly through and through
This is ours to drink up
Oh, the madness in weakness
Doubled o’er on the plate
Fill an ocean with weaponry
Hurricanes of our grace

[Chorus]
Feel as lonely as I do, as I do
Feel as lonely as I do, I do
Feel as lonely as I do
