Indie rock band Warpaint added a seductive darkness to the Ellen stage on Tuesday, performing recent single “Whiteout.”
The quartet recreated the song’s vivid art rock groove, highlighted by Stella Mozgawa’s intricate drumming and Theresa Wayman’s atmospheric guitar solo. Ellen DeGeneres offered the band a warm introduction – including a nod to a celebrity game she plays on her show: “When I heard that this rock band named their latest album Heads Up, I knew I loved them even more than I already did.”
Warpaint recently kicked off a headlining tour with their pair of spots at Coachella, the latter of which Rolling Stone included on our list of 15 Best Things from the festival’s second weekend. The band will perform next at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival on May 14th.
After wrapping their solo trek this summer, the band will support Depeche Mode on a run of North American dates launching August 23rd in Salt Lake City, Utah.
