Emily Kokal - 'Hymn'

Reminiscent of early Cat Power

Fret not! Emily’s not abandoning the Warpaint eyrie; she just happened to appear at LA’s Dilettante Records and play this new track. Whether ‘Hymn’ will appear on Warpaint’s second album, we don’t know – but what’s certain is that her cries of “yesterday” over naked, eddying guitar recall early Cat Power, and clocking in at six minutes, it’s a total “sing like no-one’s watching” moment.
