Adam Green, Egyptian Hip Hop, Surfer Blood check out Warpaint at Reading Festival

US band showcase debut album 'The Fool'

Warpaint‘s gig at Reading Festival tonight (August 27) was watched by the likes of Adam Green and members of Surfer Blood and Egyptian Hip Hop.

The hotly-tipped US band played to a sizable audience at the Festival Republic Stage, showcasing tracks from their debut album ‘The Fool’ (released on October 25), including ‘Undertow’ and ‘Warpaint’.

The band said little during the gig, although frontwoman Emily Kokal did abandon her guitar at one point, flinging her arms into the air and dancing around the stage. Before playing final track ‘Elephant’ she ordered the crowd to dance, stating, “You have to – it’s a festival.”
