Radiate Like This: Yellow Vinyl LP
Label: Virgin / Heirlooms
Release Date: 6th May
6 Years!? SIX! Without a fresh Warpaint but here they return with a warmer sounding funk than we've heard before and grooves more seductive than ever.
For those who dig: nice warm chunky bass and grooves for days.
Warpaint's upcoming album 'Radiate Like This' launching alongside new single ‘Champion’.
“Radiate Like This” - Warpaint’s much anticipated new record, not to mention their first in almost 6 years - arrives with its own very modern mythology intact, continuing the strange, brilliant, beautiful story of the band and quite neatly picking up where “Heads Up” left off. If the previous album was the coming of age, “Radiate Like This” presents Warpaint mk II in all their glory, a luminous coalescence of sound and vision which stubbornly belies its genesis, with the quartet of Kokal, Theresa Wayman, Stella Mozgawa and Jenny Lee Lindberg all recording their parts separately in various cities. “It’s the first time we’ve ever made an album like that, but in a weird way, it made us take our time with everything”, muses Kokal. “The process felt more meditative, less rushed”. This new sense of quiet confidence can be heard all through the album, in the hushed, slow build of first single “Champion” the beguiling push pull of “Proof”, the delicate intricacy and complexity of tracks like “Melting” and the winking “Send Nudes”. It’s an album that pulsates with ideas, energy and- most crucially – gorgeous melodies. Listen on in wonder.
