Warpaint - "Undertow"

A recent staple of an increasingly compelling live show, “Undertow” has already inspired a rhapsodic “look out for this song/record/band” post with only a marginally watchable, live fan-clip affixed as an exhibit. The album that will host it in properly recorded form is The Fool, the band is the all-female L.A. quartet Warpaint, one of our Stereogum40: Class of 2010 because this is the year their debut full-length The Fool comes out, with all parties involved wisely selecting this track as its lead single. Soon there’s a tour, this band paired with the Mercury Prize’s very own the xx, for a sultry bill appropriate for date night or any order of mild, pill-based depressants.

First taste of The Fool, a slowly unspooling, evocatively melodic and wonderfully structured rhythmic witch song, here:

The Fool is out 10/25 via Rough Trade. Here are those tour dates with the xx, in flyer form:
