A couple of the Wonky crew made it down to the O2 Academy in Bristol on Tuesday to see LA’s all-girl 4-piece Warpaint and we have to admit, it was a corker of a set!

The girls sauntered around, swaying their hips against their guitars and gracefully enchanting the audience with their dark, brooding sound. The clever percussion and beguiling bass was interspersed with swirling layers of guitar and beautifully charming 3 and 4 part harmonies.

By the time they played ‘Undertow’ half way through, everyone was captivated… not by the stage show or lighting (which was classically understated) but by the electrifying yet laid back atmosphere they had charismatically created. Amazing gig and definitely ones to see again.
