WARPAINT 'Heads Up'
In the past they have paired moodiness with bumped-up tempos and sinewy beats. On this new album the music's no less dark but it has an additional rhythmic urgency and tension that can be surprising. Of course, confounding expectations has been part of Warpaint's m.o. since the band formed in 2004. And so when the band convened to make their third studio album, Heads Up, they shared a common goal: to make a faster, dance-oriented record.
