Ones to watch: Warpaint

So, they’re the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Warpaint are that first new band in bloody years to make you think, “Wow – I could get into this”.

Only, Warpaint are not really new at all – I mean, it’s just early 90s shoegazing. They actually sound rather a lot like Lush, the Breeders and the Cocteau Twins during their better moments: like a nice vintage dress you’ve handed to an eager teenager to show off to her friends how edgy she is. The new Editors, then.

Why do pop stars look so young these days? Get off my lawn. Damn kids.
