Warpaint + Grouplove videos
I seen a couple of old music videos, and immediately had to grab torrents to hear more from these two bands.
Man, sometimes I miss having cable TV and watching current music videos when released.
In the late 1990s / early 2000's , my sister switched to satellite dish service, and I used to record MuchMusic, and Edge TV, on 6 hour VHS tapes .
onto to what I am digging a lot right now.
The first video I seen was of the band Grouplove and I thought at first was Modest Mouse!
This alternative rock played with soft melodies, and the child-like, sing-songy vocals sounds a a LOT like the first few Modest Mouse releases, but with more layers!
"Colours" Single from Never Trust a Happy Song Released: July 7, 2011
Grouplove - Colours [Official Video]
The next group Warpaint , are 4 young women from Los Angeles, California who deliver shoe gaze, psyche, pop, indie rock, like you would hear from Britain in the early 1990s..
The music and the video is pretty cool.... the chicks are very, very down to earth with the girl next door -type looks and normal clothes, and it is trippy.... sort of like spacey, dreamy dance music, but for stoners !
"A music video, composed of a two-song vignette from the second album—"Disco//very" and "Keep it Healthy"—was released in April 2014. Directed by Laban Pheidias, the video features skateboarding from professional skateboarders Justin Eldridge, Kris Markovich and Patrick Melcher"
