Warpaint, Live In Concert

Loading the player ...
The four women of Warpaint may hail from Los Angeles, but their sound has always conveyed the windswept heft of a rainy Seattle scene. Their hypnotic grooves, ethereal harmonies and massive drums recall bits and pieces of the grunge, alt-rock and shoegaze scenes that mark the region. In a set recorded live in Washington, D.C., that spanned three records — from 2010's The Fool to this year's Heads Up — the band showcased the full power of its moody, grooving sound.
From the start, Warpaint has been knocking on the door of an aesthetic that captivates by playing off the tension between hard-driving rhythms and spectral atmospherics. At the 9:30 Club, with smoke catching the lights and plumes of guitars mingling with Stella Mozgawa's titanic drums, the band brought its records to life on a whole new scale.
Heads Up is out now. Warpaint is on tour.
