Radiate like this
Warpaint are back. Returning with Radiate Like This, their first full-length record in six years, the LA quartet reconnect after a period of time carving their own paths: some have had babies, others released solo albums, relocated, explored new avenues.
And that’s ignoring the elephant in the room: the pandemic. Due to all these factors, Radiate Like This is a Warpaint album like none previous. Physically separated, each member recorded her parts separately – often in makeshift home studios – and slowly, layer upon layer, tweak upon tweak, tracks manifested through a uniquely gradual process. The final result is a progressive step for Warpaint. Warm and beguiling, their synonymous hazy rhythms are tightened and their grooves guided with transcendent maturity. Throughout, a subtle yet impassioned message of reaffirmation and optimism sits on every beat; encouraging us to loosen up and let go.
To celebrate the album release, we’ve invited Warpaint to take over the HERO website for a week. Across the coming days, the band will be sharing exclusive content curated by each member, sharing insights into their process, influences and obsessions. Stay tuned.
