Warpaint: TAS In Session

The second weekend of Coachella is upon us and Warpaint is on the bill. We've been caught in "The Undertow" of this L.A.-based band since 2010, when Warpaint released their excellent debut,The Fool. There is now a new, self-titled release which expands upon their atmospheric vibe. Although the band incorporated other sonic textures and a more meticulous approach to arrangment, Warpaint still maintains that same spooky vibe that filtered through their earlier work. Watch videos of Warpaint  performing in Studio A and listen to an interview with the band in the FUV Vault
