Warpaint Drop ‘Biggy,’ Second Song From Anticipated Sophomore Album
The spellbinding post-punk sorceresses of Warpaint have unveiled a second song from their forthcoming self-titled sophomore effort, and like lead single ‘Love Is to Die,’ it’s a real stunner. Built on a fat repeating bass groove and languid hip-hop beat, ‘Biggy’ is 5:55 of sweet hypnosis, though it’s entirely possible Emily Kokal’s floaty vocals mask some dark sentiments.
Warpaint wrote much of their new album — due out Jan. 21 on Rough Trade — during a month-long sojourn at Joshua Tree National Park, and after returning to their native Los Angeles, the foursome hit the studio with acclaimed producer Flood. In addition to dropping this latest preview, Warpaint have announced a seven-date tour that kicks off in New York City on March 21 and ends the following week in Minneapolis.
