Watch: Warpaint – Warpaint

So the music video isn’t quite dead yet, as this Ted Newsome directed flick illustrates.

Via NPR, they had this to say:

“One thing is clear: The underwater world Ted Newsome created for the women of Warpaint is a lot better than anything the land’s got to offer. For the group’s “Warpaint” video, Newsome created alter egos for all four members. Taking a Wizard of Oz approach, things go Technicolor once they set foot in the water. A public pool in Echo Park fills in for the ocean.”

Taken from the band’s debut album The Fool, out now on Rough Trade.
