Warpaint have told NME they are planning to strip down their sound for their forthcoming second album.

The LA four-piece said they have been coming up with ideas for the follow-up to their 2010 debut 'The Fool' during their time on the road.

Guitarist Theresa Wayman said:

We’re all meditating on it [the second album] everyday. Somebody will make up something while we're soundchecking and we'll be like, 'Don’t forget that because I really want to develop that, there's something special there'.



The band, who made their debut at the Flow Festival in Finland last night (August 12), said they are hoping to go more acoustic for the next record. They are planning to write the album in full in the autumn before heading into the studio to record it in the early part of 2012.

Wayman explained:

It’s sounding quite minimal so far which is interesting because it's the opposite of what we've been doing which is normally pretty complex. I think it'll be interesting to try and simplify that and we should experiment more with some acoustic guitars. It would be fun to have different percussive instruments in there too. We have never had something as simple as a tambourine in any of our songs, so I'm looking forward to that.



The band recently debuted new track 'Jubilee Real' in the UK but they chose to stick to material from their debut during their show in Helsinki, including 'Warpaint', 'Bees' and 'Undertow'.

Later Hercules And Love Affair’s Andy Butler donned speedos during their set in the Black Tent.

He told NME moments before going onstage:

We were voted the gayest band by the festival. They have this gaydar of the top 15 bands and we were number one so for that reason I decided to put these speedos on for a laugh.



The New York disco collective performed a host of tracks from their recent album 'Blue Songs' including 'Falling' and 'Painted Eyes'. But the biggest cheer came for their 2008 single 'Blind'.

Royksopp wrapped up the night on the Main Stage with a mixture of tracks from their 2010 album 'Senior' and 2009 LP 'Junior' including 'Happy Up Here' and 'The Girl And The Robot', although Robyn, who features on the latter track, failed to make an appearance.

The Flow Festival will continue tonight (August 13) with performances from Janelle Monae, Empire Of The Sun, Lykke Li and The Human League.
