Warpaint – “Common Blue”

Happy Valentine’s Day! Warpaint are celebrating their 20th anniversary as a band with this new song, being released as a 7″ – available now – and with an accompanying video that condenses the glitz and glamour of two decades spent on the road spreading gorgeous dreampop across the world down into four minutes.
