I’m terribly excited as one of my favourite bands, Warpaint have just announced a few UK tour dates for late on this year. The Californian four-piece have only released one album (The Fool), which soon after hearing became a quick favourite of mine. Although made up of four women, they are not a girly-girly pop group, but a sophisticated and talented band who just ooze cool (to the extent that I want to join the band)
If you’ve not heard anything by them before then you’ve been missing out. They combine poetic lyrics and wonderfully simplistic and music, creating something truly wonderful.
I saw them live at Glastonbury festival two years ago, when I only vaguely knew who they were, and I am so pleased that I did. Since then I have seen them at Bilbao BBK Live and Bestival – both last summer and on both occasions they were effortlessly great.
They are also playing at End of the Road festival this summer, alongside Sigur Ros (which will be absolutely incredible).
Tickets are on sale on Friday.
