Download: Warpaint “Billie Holiday”

(from the self-released Exquisite Corpse EP)

A completely different conversation with Warpaint up now at L.A. RECORD. This ran in the August print issue but we didn’t post online til we got an MP3. I think it’s worth it. As I said before, I’m really getting into this band. I think Emily and Theresa did a great job in this interview, too.

What was your longest car ride together?
EK: We went to Vancouver together to play and write and hang out. We wrote music on the mouth of a cove.
TW: There were mermaids—lots of mermaids there. It was called Deep Cove. And we learned from them how to be the hypnotic sirens we are.
Mermaids are half-naked.
EK: Maybe we’ll just play naked.
Thanks for giving our website one million hits.
TW: I’m gonna say ‘naked’ in every interview from now on.
EK: Change our name to Naked Warpaint. Naked Paint.

All the rest (including the origin of the naked-guy story from the OC WEEKLY article) over here. I hope to get them down to Long Beach in the near future so watch this site.
