Today marks the return of LA rockers Warpaint with their sophomore self-titled album, a ten-song blend of slinky, bass-driven jams, and it’s certainly been long-awaited—their first record of came out in 2010. That same year also held the last music video work from the deliciously twisted British director Chris Cunningham (“New York Is Killing Me” by Gil-Scott Heron), but thankfully he’s stepped back into the spotlight as well, by crafting a documentary and music video combo surrounding Warpaint and their new tunes.

Warpaint

Today marks the return of L.A. rockers Warpaint with their sophomore self-titled album, a ten-song blend of slinky, bass-driven jams, and it’s certainly been long-awaited—their first record of came out in 2010. That same year also held the last music video work from the deliciously twisted British director Chris Cunningham (“New York Is Killing Me” by Gil-Scott Heron), but thankfully he’s stepped back into the spotlight as well, by crafting a documentary and music video combo surrounding Warpaint and their new tunes.

The creative mind behind videos such as Aphex Twin’s “Come To Daddy,” Portishead’s “Only You,” and “Sheena is a Parasite” by The Horrors, Cunningham is a director remarkably consistent in giving each project that he tackles a unique spin. For his work with Warpaint, he spent over two years with the band—comprised of founding trio Emily Kokal, Theresa Wayman, and Jenny Lee Lindberg—as they wrote, rehearsed, and recorded their latest album. And now a new documentary aims to explore that process, as well as offer reimagined music videos for each track.

Showcasing elements from both the documentary and music videos, a new clip (via Pitchfork) uses Warpaint’s new single “Love Is To Die” to confirm that Cunningham’s mysterious sensibilities are well and present once more, but this time mixed with an intimate look into the established band’s dynamic. It’s bound to be an interesting result; no release date set yet, but check out the new clip below in the meantime.
