On October 8, the always delightful Warpaint returned to New York (we caught their last show here at Baby’s All Right back in July) for the second of two sold out shows – with the other coming the night before in Brooklyn at Warsaw.

Both came in support of their new album Heads Up which was released in September via Rough Trade.

Our photographer Joe Saturday captured all the action for us. Find his shots of Warpaint as well as openers Facial posted below, along with Warpaint’s setlist.

Warpaint at Baby’s All Right (July 25, 2016)

After catching a shortened set from Foals in Manhattan, I headed over to catch a set from Warpaint at Baby’s All Right. This intimate show was a part of the It’s A School Night Series. Originally fans had to RSVP for a chance to win entry, but during the show the band posted to social media saying it was a free show. Something got mixed up somewhere down the line, and although it was still a pretty packed show, it wasn’t the sold out show that Warpaint at Baby’s All Right should’ve been.

Singer-songwriter Andy Shauf opened things up with a hushed set, then it was time for Warpaint. This showed served as a little warm-up for them, testing out some new songs of their recently released album Heads Up (released via Rough Trade Records), rounding out the rest of their set with old favorites like “Undertow,” “Elephants,” and “Love Is To Die.”

Find their setlist posted below, along with shots of both their set and Andy Shauf’s.

[music video]: Warpaint – Disco/Very & Keep It Healthy

By Will Oliver, April 10th 2014 — with 1 comment

Warpaint

Warpaint have released a music video for two songs off their new album: “Disco/Very” and “Keep It Healthy.” A good old two for one deal. The first part (“Disco/Very”) features the girls dancing in the street during the daytime while the second part (“Keep It Healthy”) features them hanging out with skaters at night.

Former pro skateboarder Laban Pheidias directed it. Find it below.

Warpaint @ Webster Hall (March 21, 2014)

When I last saw Warpaint at Union Pool in January, it was the first time they were playing the new material off their recently released self-titled album live. This time around they returned to New York City with plenty of shows under their belt.

The wonderful Cate Le Bon opened things up and did so in a delightful fashion. Le Bon, who released her latest album Mug Museum last year, gave a tight performance that set the table for the ladies of Warpaint.

Warpaint have a dedicated fanbase, who showed their adoration for the ladies early on by showering them with roses that fans threw on stage as the ladies walked up to their spots on stage. The ladies greeted fans back with “Bees” from their debut album, before kicking into the new album’s “Intro” which led right into “Keep It Healthy.” It was wonderful as ever to see the girls rock out. Seeing the calm precision of drummer Stella Mozgawa and vocalist/guitarist Theresa Wayman was dreamy when compared alongside the more lively movements of vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Emily Kokal and bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg who almost never kept still. It’s a joy to watch them all collectively reconstruct their songs live, and to look like they’re having so much fun doing so.

While they were only testing out the waters that were the new songs in early January, they had since returned with more confident and tighter playing of their material, acting as if they had been playing these songs forever. Warpaint delivered the goods once again.

Check out some more photos below. I’ve also shared the setlist. Read the rest of this entry »

Warpaint @ Union Pool (January 17, 2014)

Warpaint will release their fantastic new (self-titled) album next Tuesday. Last night they played a surprise intimate show at Brooklyn’s Union Pool, which is pretty amazing considering the size of the venue is somewhere around 150.

Being such a small venue, it was cool to see the band packed tightly on the stage, working closely to bring the tracks from the new album to life. The obvious goal of the evening was to serve as a warm-up gig for their upcoming tour, and to finally share the new songs to an audience. It was wonderful to hear all of the new songs for the first time, as they were all performed with tight love and care.

The duel vocal work of Emily Kokal and  Theresa Wayman is wondrous, as is the bass work of Jenny Lee Lindberg and drumming of Stella Mozgawa, who both were stationed behind the former two, but rocked out just as hard, if not more.

The 10-song set included seven songs from the new album, including the two previously released tracks, “Love Is To Die” and “Biggy.” They were highlights for sure, as well as the bass-heavy “Disco Very” and previously released tracks “Bees” and “Elephants.” The latter was an epic closer that was stretched out to an epic jam that was a perfect way to close the night. They also included a new track called “No Way Out” that isn’t on their new album.

Warpaint will return to New York to play Webster Hall on March 21st. Tickets are still available.

[new]: Warpaint – Biggy

By Will Oliver, December 6th 2013

Warpaint

The ladies of Warpaint will return with a brand new (self-titled) album come January 21 via Rough Trade.

They got my attention with the stunning first track released, “Love Is To Die,” and now they’ve returned with another track from the album. This time it’s “Biggy”, the silky smooth track that slow builds over vibrant synths, creating a sexy, haunting atmosphere, that is hard to shake.

You can grab a free download of the track at their soundtrack page, but move quick, as it’s only going up for 24 hours. You can stream it below, either way.

Can’t wait for the rest of the album, seems like it’s going to be a good one.

[new]: Warpaint – Love Is To Die

Warpaint - Love Is To Die

Warpaint are back with a new song called “Love Is To Die,” which will be off their upcoming new self-titled album, due out January 21 via Rough Trade.

“Love Is To Die” is a otherworldly metative journey that leans equally on psych-elements and pop. It’s instant, and finds ways to hook further into your brain with every listen. It’s transcendent and hypnotic. In other words, it’s god damn good.

After the band experienced some inspirational writing/recording session at The Joshua Tree last year, the album was conceived. The album was recorded and mixed with Flood, except for 2 songs which were handled by Nigel Godrich.

Take a listen to “Love Is To Die” below, and hit the jump for the album’s 12-song tracklist.
