L.A shoegazers Warpaint have released a brand new video. The song, ‘Warpaint’, is taken from the all-girl team’s psychedelic inspired debut album The Fool, which was released last year on Rough Trade Records. The video was directed by noted skateboard writer Ted Newsome and features members of the band performing underwater. Given the watery tones of the guitar texture, it seems a pretty perfect visual match to the song.
Here’s what band members Emily, Theresa, Jenny and Stella have to say about it:
“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.”
Well, we certainly enjoyed it. Did you?
