VIDEO: Warpaint – Elephants

by Winston "Stone" Ford


I’ve been in love with the LA trio Warpaint ever since their Exquisite Corpse EP dropped last year. I’m kicking myself for not blogging about them soon. Elephants is hands down one of the best songs of 2009 that you haven’t heard of, consisting of a rather sick bass line (remember those?) and some 90s era grunge guitars. While their other track “Billie Holiday, is a spooky choral arrangement and has been getting even more spins in my iPod. I’m surprised that they aren’t getting the love in the indie press like some other, lesser bands. (again, Neon Indian, cough). Anyway, 2010 will be these ladies time to shine, and they are top on my list of “bands to see” when I’m at SXSW in March. (via, FADER)

    Yo MAN- why haven’t shared this before?? Their look along with their sound is pretty hot. I’ll def be checking for them too at SXSW!

    Trivia (and the way I found this band) – Theresa Wayman (vox/guitar) played the suicidal secret admirer in Rules of Attraction. Good find.

  • Stone

    Chris, that’s a good catch man. I never even put two and two together (and Rules of Attraction is one of my favorite films too!)

    Yvette – Yes, I’ve been holding on to Warpaint for a while. Sorry! Slap me next time you see me :)
