Woozy – “Painted White”

The New Orleans DIY trio Woozy describe their sound as “sadgaze/bummercore,” and that’s probably about the best self-description you could ever hope to hear an indie band give. The band’s debut album Blistered comes out next week, and we’ve posted the early songs “Venom” and “Gilding The Lily.” And now The FADER has posted a third, an alternately ugly and pretty little number called “Painted White.” The song starts out as a serrated riff-bomb before turning hazy and tingly. Woozy’s John St. Cyr tells The FADER that the song “is a snarky dissection of an artist’s lifestyle choices: the desire for freedom from expectation and routine and the fear of having creative vitality suppressed (painted white) opposes the desire for structure and direction and the fear of purposelessness. The song then turns sincere with a real and desperate plea for the wisdom and strength to find something truly meaningful.” Listen to it below.
