You could compare Warpaint to Au Revoir Simone for other reasons than being a female trio with fragile melodies, but the Los Angeles crew do something darker. It’s sorta there in the differences between their names. For instance, David Lynch had nothing to do with the dreamy Adam Harding and Burke Roberts-directed video for “Stars,” but its more eerily atmospheric (and shadowy) than “Shadows” even if the title sounds brighter.

Last night’s gig at Cameo was Warpaint’s final CMJ appearance, but you can catch the band on tour with MBAR at these venues.
