Since the band’s inception in 201o, breaking onto the global scene with  debut album The Fool, Warpaint have gained cult-like status and confounded expectations; releasing two more studio albums, 2014’s Warpaint and 2016’s Heads Up. The four-piece are renowned for creating sensual mood atmospheres; gauzy guitars, hypnotic harmonies and sinister grooves.

Just as they were coming together to work on a new album in 2020, the pandemic consigned them to opposite ends of the globe. Despite this, they recently released ‘Lilys’, their first newly written music in five years. Co-produced and mixed by Sam Petts-Davies (Radiohead, Frank Ocean), ‘Lilys’ has already featured on HBO’s new series Made For Love, and captures the essence of a band reunited and reconnected.
