MTV PUSH Artist Of The Week: Warpaint

This week’s MTV PUSH Artist of the Week is the Los Angeles group Warpaint. We’ve been going kinda crazy about these California girls for a while now. They’re one of MTV’s Artists To Watch in 2011; they’ve got a fantastic, atmospheric and haunting debut album out (The Fool); and as you will see in the below videos, they’re capable of making quite a gorgeous little racket, live.

Warpaint is Emily Kokal (vocals/guitar), Theresa Wayman (vocals/guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bassist/vocals) and Stella Mozgawa (drums/keyboards), and on The Fool, the band crafts an exotic, ghostly sound with minimal instrumentation to back Wayman’s ethereal vocals. But it’s onstage where Warpaint is perhaps most in their element.

By way of illustration we have unmissable highlights from Warpaint’s recent “Live In NYC” show for you. Watch Warpaint perform “Bees,” “Composure,” “Undertow,” “Warpaint,” “Set Your Arms Down” and “Majesty.” And check out Warpaint interviews and photos from the group’s “Live In NYC” performance.
