All female four piece Warpaint are an experimental shoegaze outfit hailing from Los Angeles, California. In 2008 the band self released the EP Exquisite Corpse, managing to reach the number one spot on the LA Amoeba Records local artist chart. From there the interest only grew with Los Angeles based record label Manimal Vinyl (most notable for releasing Bat For Lashes debut Fur And Gold) rereleasing the EP worldwide. Exquisite Corpse is six tracks long, clocking in at just under 34 minutes, each song is full of beautiful vocal harmonies and delicate minimalist instrumentation, not too dissimilar from British band The XX.
After signing to Rough Trade at the end of 2009 the band have finally gotten round to releasing their debut album, produced by Tom Biller (Kanye West, Liars) the nine track LP will be arriving on store shelves October 25th and will be proceeded by the single “Undertow”.
Today’s MP3 is Undertow, the lead single from the bands debut LP, this 6 minute epic is a slight departure from the twinkling guitar riff found on Exquisite Corpse but instead focuses on a bass driven opening and catchy refrain which you can download by signing up the bands mailing list here or below from us.
