The Soundtrack to My Life by Warpaint's Theresa Wayman
Theresa Wayman is one-quarter of Warpaint, the band whose rousing siren sounds have bewitched music-lovers since their formation way back in 2004. This September sees the group release their latest album, Heads Up – which founding member, vocalist, and guitarist Wayman has crafted while simultaneously working on her own solo electronic album, BOSS.
If you're fortunate enough to have witnessed Warpaint perform live, you may have noticed that all four members seem intrinsically close – even spiritually linked – to one another. Wayman says that they listen to music together frequently, but rarely talk about it, as they already know which deep-rooted music has informed them individually. And then there’s the dark charm in their songs. 2009’s Exquisite Corpse transported women to the bedrooms of their pubescent selves and captivated men with a seductive but sinister 'Lisbon Girls' effect. Four albums later and their sound has evolved into an exciting new experimental, electronic direction prevalent on new single, New Song. Heads Up looks to be a new chapter: a mature, evolved piece of work that has allowed the outfit to explore new sounds and even instruments, in order to create something entirely fresh. via AnotherMag
