Warpaint hail from Los Angeles and is an all-girl band crafting picturesque intimate and energetic songs utilizing traits of post-punk, shoegaze, folk and psychedelic rock paired with angelic, yet distinct vocal delivery. Indie music market leaders like Cat Power, Sonic Youth and Yeah Yeah Yeahs come to mind when listening to their first EP, going by the tasteful name ‘Exquisite Corpse’ was released on Manimal Vinyl (also home of Bat For Lashes and Rainbow Arabia) and mixed by another industry veteran, John Frusciante.
With all these big names as reference points, it’s no surprise that they have recently been signed to Rough Trade who are desperately waiting to release their first full-length. Until then, you can see Warpaint touring the states with Yeasayer and Akron/Family in February and March. For the time in between and in order to become a part of their enlightened circle of admirers, watch the immediately captivating video to ‘Elephants’ after the jump!
