WARPAINT'S TOP 5 TRACKS
BY BASSIST JENNY LEE LINDBERG
This name was given to the song due to the sway I was doing whilst playing bass; indicative of the Beetles sway or any dance from the early 60's. This song evokes every emotion possible. It's the probably the most skitzo song.
Sounds like elephants stomping the grounds - out to cause a rickus! A great trance and meditative experience, but also a very high energy song.
The opening of this song is a homage to the Lars Von Trier film, Antichrist. I love how high energy the song is, it reminds me of Elephants in that sense.
We wrote Majesty in Malibu in 2007, when Warpaint was just a three piece (Emily, Theresa, and Jenny). Since then it has taken on a life of its own, and has transformed wonderfully. I love the tragedy in this song, you can hear it in Theresa's voice.
Bees was originally written for the bees! The bassline sounds a bit like a mass of buzzin' bees. I love this song, because it makes me dance, and it's not so in your face. I think it needs a few listens before you catch on, then I believe magical things are revealed.
