"WARPAINT" VIDEO PREMIERE

Warpaint has unveiled the music video for their eponymous single "Warpaint" today. The video was directed by Ted Newsome, who created a "vibrant, dreamy" underwater world. You can check out the video on NPR's "First Watch" in the US, and on VEVO in the UK and many other territories. Here's what the girls of Warpaint had to say of the video to NPR:

We've always had the idea to do a video underwater, and were excited when our friend Ted Newsome sent us a treatment, which involved just that. It was an opportunity to create a fantastical world where oxygen, time and style were simply not an issue. Turned out to be far more challenging than we had initially expected, but we pulled through. We're excited about it and hope you enjoy.

I found a torrent of the Glastonbury set at the John Peel Stage and uploaded it to Megaupload. Here's the link in case it passed unnoticed to somebody who might be interested:

I've recently discovered a better shoegaze band called Foxtail Somersault; who hail from San Francisco.

Anyway, you were the one who initially said you wouldn't actually consider Warpaint a shoe-gaze band, did you change your mind?

No. But I totally agree with you that Foxtail Somersault sound more like a proper shoe-gaze band than Warpaint. I should've worded it: I've recently discovered a proper shoegaze band.

Apparently Foxtail Somersault are incurring in performing acoustically. This podcast contains a totally acoustic set somewhere, i thought i'd post a link for you in case you'd like to check it out, although i haven't bothered to listen to it myself:

I've been hearing some things about these gals. Just watched a video ("Shadow" I think?) this morning.

Definitely worth looking into. Interesting melodies.

However, they looked and acted so goddamn hipster I could barely stand it. I can just envision them all giving me dirty looks for ordering a coffee improperly at an SBC.

Link, please. I like to see backing proof when people have an opinion based on some evidence. I also would like to find out if i'm smart enough to properly judge somebody's character by watching them in a few minutes long youtube clip. Thanks.

Bump.


Highlights of Warpaint's performance at Reading and Leeds Festival in the UK, are available to watch here (only for residents of First World countries, i assume):
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00k30c4

Is anyone able to rip that and post it here? I'm only able to watch this vid of them performing "Undertow":

I discovered this band about month ago (they had a gig in Finland and after that the band was played in radio Helsinki). Yeah, altough there´s nothing that I have heard before they make very enjoyable music. I think it´s something between P.J Harvey and Siouxsie.

A recording of Warpaint's performance at Flow Festival in Helsinki on Friday, August 12th of 2011, is available to download here:
http://www.2shared.com/file/85Q7-Kzp...Fest_2011.html

It must be a capture of the gimmieindie webcast, although the .rar file does not include any info of any kind so its origin is uncertain. Not the greatest recording, there are better ones floating around but some completists might like it. Set-list consisted of "Bees", "Composure", "Undertow", "Burgundy", "Beetles", "Majesty", and "Elephants".
