“Come around, let’s go found
There’s no words to call
Tonight, you really see nothing of this girl
They work, they don’t know the roots behind
‘Cause I got a knife to cut out the memories
So carefully, too carefully, it’s not necessarily
To be so dark”
There is this little circle of people at work who share music recommendations with each other. The other day I emailed one of the inner circle and said “Warpaint. Go. Listen.” She responded that another friend had just told her about them the day before and she was in love.
Warpaint released a new album this week, but I’d already worn out the two singles they released earlier from the album. Today, I’m sharing “Love is to Die.” It’s dark. It’s light. It’s a treat. It probably isn’t my favorite song from their new self-titled album. If you want to hear more, check them out on iTunes, of course. You can also visit NPR to hear the whole album.
