MP3: Warpaint – “Undertow”

Fresh Heirs had the pleasure of checking out Warpaint last month at Ottobar with Beach Fossils and Javelin, a show that did not disappoint one bit. Warpaint was eerie, awesome, and intense, all qualities that can be applied to “Undertow,” the lead single for The Fool, the debut Warpaint full-length to be released October 25.

“Undertow” strings together harmonies with simple laid-back guitars, but the drums becoming pounding, adding more intensity to the song. Live, this song was simply amazing, and the recording does do it justice. But still, if you want to see get the whole Warpaint experience, go see them live, as they are touring with the xx. However, if you live in the DC area, October 5’s 9:30 Club show is sold out.
