Single Review – Warpaint – New Song

The talented and capable Art Rockers from California are back with their third studio album Heads Up for September 23rd and with it, Warpaint are looking to ‘add maturity to their sound’ according to Jenny Lee Lindberg. It has been a sound that always adds something more and tends to be more fluctuating within the realms of the three to six minutes of their tracks. This is yet to be polled together into a brilliant body of work, yet they are clearly a talented bunch who can produce masterful tracks, just not that masterful album just yet. The first track from their third album is ‘New Song’ and it is another great single that makes the most of the changes to their sound. This new song has a nori able change of tone and is in effect a smooth and coolly delivered piece of Dance Pop. The song maximises vocal samples and slick harmonies that echo out into the shifting rhythm sections and the rolling bass. The song reflects a welcome injection of energy without the band sacrificing their core sound, which remains with the atmospheric overtures enhancing the catchy features.
