It almost feels like a different lifetime when I was obsessed with Warpaint, as latterly every hipster became. I saw the band a dozen times between 2010-2013 which I think sums my obsession with their live prowess better than some waffled words.
2009’s Exquisite Corpse is still a magnificent collection but ineligible for this list, so I’ve picked perhaps their most chart friendly and immediate track Undertow. As sensual as the band have ever been with looping rhythms and interplaying rhythm section providing the platform for Emily and Theresa’s dual, dreamy vocals to hook you in.
I wonder if we’ll get a ten year tour next year for The Fool, I think I would probably see that.
