“Radiate Like This” – Warpaint’s much anticipated new record, not to mention their first in almost 6 years – arrives with
its own very modern mythology intact, continuing the strange, brilliant, beautiful story of the band and quite neatly
picking up where “Heads Up” left off. If the previous album was the coming of age, “Radiate Like This” presents
Warpaint mk II in all their glory, a luminous coalescence of sound and vision which stubbornly belies its genesis, with
the quartet of Kokal, Theresa Wayman, Stella Mozgawa and Jenny Lee Lindberg all recording their parts separately in
various cities. “It’s the first time we’ve ever made an album like that, but in a weird way, it made us take our time with
everything”, muses Kokal. “The process felt more meditative, less rushed”. This new sense of quiet confidence can be
heard all through the album, in the hushed, slow build of first single “Champion” the beguiling push pull of “Proof”, the
delicate intricacy and complexity of tracks like “Melting” and the winking “Send Nudes”. It’s an album that pulsates with
ideas, energy and- most crucially – gorgeous melodies.
