All Music Guide:
A fittingly circular name for a band that makes trance-inducing, tribal music, Rings formed from the ashes of First Nation. When Melissa Livaudais left the group, Abby Portner joined remaining members Kate Rosko and Nina Mehta. The trio continued as First Nation until former Múm member Kristín Anna Valtýsdóttir joined them while they were recording what was going to be their second album. Inspired by the album title Rings, the quartet made that their name as well. Rings released their debut album of "patchworked tranced feminist compositions" in early 2008 on Paw Tracks.
