Warpaint – Love is To Die

Warpaint_-_Warpaint_album“Love is To Die” is four girls on a psychedelic mission. The first single to be taken from the second self titled album of Los Angeles quartet boasts its indie roots fused carefully with electronic dream pop. The hazy vocals of front woman, Emily Kokal, blend sensually with the chiming guitars drenched in reverb and are soaked within the hallucinatory melody. Words like “I’m not alive” ring hauntingly through the piece, further emphasising its obscure mood. The song also radiates an almost tribal, instinctive nature. Warpaint are definitely ones to keep an eye out for this year. Watch this space. Tiarna Armstrong
