A Los Angeles quartet dealing in sparse, atmospheric art rock, Warpaint originally consisted of sisters Jenny Lee Lindberg and Shannyn Sossamon, as well as Emily Kokal and Theresa Wayman, although Sossamon was later replaced by Stella Mozgawa. The band experimented with murky spaciousness and stripped-down arrangements, gaining the attention of former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante. In 2009, they self-released their debut EP, Exquisite Corpse. After a successful showing at CMJ, they signed with Rough Trade and began recording their full-length debut. The Fool arrived in 2010, featuring more fleshed-out songcraft and stronger performances. After taking a few years to really connect as a group, the band released the single "Love Is to Die," which was featured in a Calvin Klein advert in September 2013. Their eponymous sophomore album followed in early 2014. ~ Gregory Heaney
