Warpaint’s latest video for the song, also called “Warpaint,” is shot almost completely underwater. Granted this type of environment allows hair and clothing to flow with grace and angelic charm with little intervention from a filmmaker and it’s a device that’s been used a million and one times as the natural surroundings can do most of the work. But, the video’s director, Ted Newsome, does carve an entire world for the band to inhabit and the sections where faces are cutting through the water are pretty cool. The song is the draw, though, the band’s harmonies and oft-funk at full swing.
“Warpaint” is from their 2010 release, The Fool.
