I like shows like this – ones where I have absolutely no idea what to expect from a band. Before entering the Luminary Center, I had no idea what the LA quartet Warpaint sounded like. The RFT said “haunting dreampsych.” Someone else said “The GoGos on a boatload of quaaludes” (in a good way). Either way, I was incredibly impressed from the very first song. Such an interesting blend of beauty and intensity, danceability and out-there musical exploration.
The new album doesn’t drop until October. I can’t wait.
