Warpaint “Exquisite Corpse” EP (2009)

August 8, 2011

Warpaint is an all-female band from Los Angeles who self-released their first material as an EP in 2008 (re-released by a record label one year later). The girls play delicious art rock with some tracks matching exactly the dream pop subgenre. These five songs feel like sonic landscapes rather than concrete sounds: the pace is quiet, delicate vocals dissolve in air. The record’s highlights are obviously the opener Stars, a heartwrenching ballad in which the band touch something mystique, and subsequent Elephants, a proof that sometimes Warpaint can be more rock than art.
