W is for Warpaint



This group’s style has several classifications, including the aptly termed dream pop. I find that so fitting because Beck’s “Dreams” has a similar sound to Warpaint’s “New Song”. WNKU tends to play blocks of loosely themed music and has played these literally dreamy sounding numbers back to back.


I’m going to make up a group named Waking Up Dead. They have a sound that harkens to Marilyn Manson’s androgynous “Mechanical Animals” era.

  3. I do know Warpaint - "ethereal" might be a good term for them?

    1. Glad you liked the dreaminess, my dear. As for MM, I fell in love with his intellect and the music followed. His dark and amusing autobiography "Long Hard Road Out of Hell" hooked me first.
