We've witnessed some great bands this year in 2010 and Warpaint is no exception. Last Friday they played a fantastic show for free at the Whitney Museum. It's really refreshing to see a group of all women take command of the stage. As my friend said, Warpaint plays organically, like they're in a big jam session. There's nothing tight or orchestrated about their songs: it's very free-flowing. Warpaint knows how to master their instruments and their vocals are airy and chilling...almost haunted.

The group is in the middle of a mega-tour and will be performing with The xx in the US and Canada starting this fall. Go see them!
