We are ridiculously close to having a new Warpaint album in our lives. The album, entitled Heads Up, is out on September 23. That’s this Friday! The LA band isn’t leaving us music-less until then, thankfully. Today the band released “Whiteout” as a preview of the new album, and it does not disappoint.
The track is built on a strong, driving beat over which the rest of the song slinks and slides. The guitar work in particular is noteworthy—the electric strings giving “Whiteout” an expansive, billowy sound not unlike a weather-related whiteout. With such an excellent new track, we’re excited for Friday to listen to the rest of Heads Up.
Give “Whiteout” a listen below. Heads Up will be the band’s third studio album, and is being released through Rough Trade Records. Pre-orders are still available here.
