Artist Info

Warpaint

Warpaint are a 4-piece band from California whose unique brand of intricate guitar lines, hypnotic vocals and driving post punk rhythms combine to create a gorgeous, unique sound. Both on record and on stage Warpaint sound like they're channeling something truly otherworldly and mystical. Warpaint have seen constant exposure in publications such as The Guardian, The Independent, Rolling Stone, Spin, Mojo, Q, Crack Magazine, Interview, Nylon, Bust, NME and was featured on the cover of the LA Weekly, as well as having performed on television programs such as Conan, Ellen and Later With Jools Holland.

Warpaint's debut album The Fool was named on of the 50 Best Albums of the Decade by NME; their sophomore album 'Warpaint' debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard Alternative Album Chart as well as the U.K. Album Chart, and was named one of the albums of the year in publications such as The Chicago Tribune, LA Magazine, Time Out, NME and American Songwriter. Their third album 'Heads Up' enjoyed a Top 40 debut on the Billboard Current Albums Chart, #13 on the U.K. Album Chart. ‘Radiate Like This’, the bands forthcoming album will be release May 6, 2022.

Belief

Belief, the experimental dance music project of Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Kurt Vile, Courtney Barnett) and Boom Bip, share a new song, “WOT” today with a video by Jim Hosking (The Greasy Strangler, An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn). Watch here and listen here. The song is taken from their forthcoming debut album Belief, out July 15 via Lex Records—pre-order/pre-save it here.

“‘WOT’ is a playful track that we added last minute to the album,” says Mozgawa. “It has a cheeky, mischievous spirit that we felt was missing from the record. It all came together quickly and in a shared flow state.”

“Stella came to me with this killer Oberheim part, which is the main synth in the track,” says Boom Bip. “It has this driving energy and atonal quality that sits satisfyingly alone quite well.”

“I once glimpsed a man in Oxford busking by performing a one footed dance and he was making a lot of money,” says Hosking. “I remembered him when I heard the track “WOT” by Belief—the track burrows into your brain and never relents, rather like the one footed dance I once glimpsed in Oxford. The video was shot in Willesden Green in London where the sun always shines. That’s why they call it the L.A. of London.”

Since unveiling the project earlier this year, Belief has shared “Art of Love,” “Jung,” “I Want To Be” and “Ulu”—plus remixes from HAAiFalty DLVanishing Twin and Boom Bip’s own rework of “I Want To Be” on their Versions EP in April.

Furthermore, Belief will support Mozgawa’s band Warpaint on the road this summer with dates in New YorkPhiladelphiaD.C.Toronto and more. See full details below.

Mozgawa—best known as the drummer of Warpaint and a frequent collaborator with Kurt Vile, Courtney Barnett (whose wildly acclaimed Things Take Time, Take Time she co-produced) and more—and Boom Bip, the legendary, Mercury Prize-nominated L.A. producer born Bryan Charles Hollon, met more than ten years ago when Mozgawa first moved from Australia to L.A. Bonding over their mutual love of techno legends like LFO and 808 State, they found deep musical kinship and began trading ideas in earnest when Hollon took Mozgawa on tour to drum with his Neon Neon project in 2013.

In 2016 they finally found time to cram every synth and bit of gear they owned into Eric Wareheim’s Absolutely Studios and jam with a single prompt: What Would Mark Bell Do? Recording hours of improvisation, they’ve spent chunks of time over the five years since shaping that material, playing under-the-radar shows cheekily billed as Beef to flesh out ideas along the way.
