Love Laws LOVE LEAKS 7/10 Ir­re­sistible solo first from Warpaint’s vo­cal­ist and gui­tarist

they’ve been busy writ­ing and tour­ing in sup­port of both Depeche Mode and (more sur­pris­ingly) Harry Styles, but there’s been no new mu­sic from Warpaint since 2016. theresa Way­man, how­ever, has been work­ing on her solo de­but. If the ap­ple hasn’t fallen miles from the tree, then this hyp­notic blend of R&B-pop, lu­mi­nous chill­wave and whacked-out funk – on which she plays gui­tar, bass and synth, and co-pro­duces along­side Dan Carey and Money Mark – has its own pi­quancy. “tu­to­rial”, for ex­am­ple, sug­gests a con­cussed Karen Car­pen­ter fronting tame Im­pala, while field record­ings, ef­fects and 3D pro­duc­tion un­set­tle the sump­tu­ous “Safe”, and “Sas­safras In­ter­lude” is a strik­ingly sparse palate cleanser.
