All-girl quartet from Los Angeles

Warpaint weave intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals, and driving post punk rhythms into gorgeous, sprawling songs that skirt the line between psychedelia and intimacy. Both live and on record, Warpaint sound like they're channeling something truly otherworldly and mystical. Rough Trade released their long-awaited debut full-length album The Fool in 2010.

Recorded in LA, The Fool was produced by Tom Biller (Beck, Karen O, Liars), with further mixes from Andrew Weatherall (New Order, Primal Scream, Bjork) and Adam Samuels (John Frusciante, Daniel Lanois). The Fool follows their Exquisite Corpse EP, released in 2009.

The all-girl quartet from Los Angeles has toured incessantly over the last few years, with standout performances at some of the world’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Fuji Rock, Primavera, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella, to name but a few. They have also shared the stage with Sonic Youth, TV on the Radio, The xx, Band of Horses, and Yeasayer.

Warpaint is Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass/vocals), and Stella Mozgawa (drums).

“First they hypnotize; then they get you dancing.”–– NEW YORK TIMES

“The album is damn stunning -- an incredibly well produced collection of drifty, arty, swoony, low end-loving psychedelic rock. But it's not stoner music. It's dark and pretty and kinda Goth and ... well, we could go on, or you could just listen to it.”––LA WEEKLY

“The Fool is a success no matter how you slice it, playing like a genre record for a genre that doesn't exist.” ––CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND

“While too many indie girl groups seem content to rebuild the Wall of Sound brick by brick, this Los Angeles quartet dedicate their hypnotic harmonies and guitars to a different cause: the House of Ian Curtis.”––SPIN 8/10

“One of the year's most promising new acts, Warpaint construct mysterious songs that pair the rhythmic chug of Pylon with the otherworldly eeriness of Throwing Muses. Bass lines zigzag and drums kick off-kilter rhythms and Emily Kokal's soft, pleading vocals. Every song feels like an incantation: weirdo dance number "Beetle" finds Kokal belting out lyrics in jump-rope cadence between bouts of bent-wire guitar and eerie ripples of synth.”––ROLLING STONE
