Warpaint bring heady, spaced-out jams to Latitude 2015

At times Warpaint don’t quite connect, but when they hit their sweet-sour spot, they’re electric.

Live, Warpaint have an inbuilt knack for turning cuts from ‘The Fool’ into spiraling, barely harnessed beasts, and letting self-titled second album songs hit hard and abrasive. Dark and haunting, erratic and soaring, they’re suited to darkened venues with low ceilings and rammed crowds. Today in broad daylight with a dispersed audience, at times, they don’t quite connect.

Warpaint thanks the audience for standing out in the sun with their “English skin,” before launching into “the melting point” of their set. ‘Biggy’ and one off release ‘I’ll Start Believing’ follow, and they start to drift beautifully, like a jammy helium balloon having a wander through a hedgy maze. Jenny Lee Lindberg and Stella Mogwaza locked together is goosebumpy, electical madness, and once ‘Disco/Very’ kicks in they hit that sweet-sour spot they’re truly capable of.
