Warpaint's new song is called New Song and it's great

New Song is some of their most accessible music to date.

There's a moment in Warpaint's latest song New Song where the band drawl, "You got the moves, you got moves, you got the moves, bang bang baby," as if they were about to drop into Moves Like Jagger. I think this best highlights the pop nature of New Song and how it's perhaps Warpaint's most accessible release to date. This is because New Song is built around focus. New Song burns with a frenzied energy not often heard in Warpaint songs and it's a welcome addition. 

The reverb; a key element of any Warpaint release is still there but it doesn't dominate the soundscape. Instead, the track opens with a water droplet-like bass line instantly pushing up the pace from the languid tones created in previous songs like Love Is To Die.  New Song follows up from their self-titled album, a very introspective and beautiful album but one marred by a certain aimlessness. Heads Up seems to be shaping up to be the opposite, indeed New Song is rather straightforward but aren't some of the best songs like that?
