WARPAINT @ L'Album de la Semaine, Canal+ Paris Jan 21 2014

WARPAINT @ L'Album de la Semaine, Canal+ Paris Jan 21 2014
WARPAINT played a sold-out show yesterday night @ Trabendo club in Paris, from what friends told me , the sound wasn't that good and the band wasn't very tight, can't blame them it was the first show on the Tour.

Tonight they're playing famous Canal+ TV show, They do have a lot of press over here so I guess I should check these media darlings. I have to say I've never heard anything , I don't even know what kind of music they're playing. So no preconceived mind about this all girl band.

First song is starting with a long instrumental intro that is sounding a bit like the early The Cure, then we have ambient songs. All the girls are singing lead vocals (apart from the drummer) and doing backing vocals with lots of effects on their voices.
Can't tell that they do have a hit single out there as all their songs are very "ambient" with atmospheric voices and guitars
It's sounding like a English Post New Wave band from the 80's.
Hard to believe that some of the press is calling this "a Rock band", its NOT.
Not bad but not really the stuff that we like, we're more into Rock and wild guitars.
Good show.
