Video: Warpaint

Warpaint "Bees" from Yours Truly on Vimeo.

"Reverb and minor chords are beautiful things for Warpaint, a four-woman band from Los Angeles. The reverb makes the guitars weightless yet enveloping, and when the women use them for high, intertwining, arpeggiated lines, they hint at the gleam of Congolese pop. The minor keys keep the songs pensive and serious. And the songs unfold with architectural clarity, advancing from ethereal to earthy....First they hypnotize; then they get you dancing." -NEW YORK TIMES
