If anyone were to ask me what makes Warehouse one of the best young bands going, I’d likely answer with “Simultaneous Contrasts.” And, really, I don’t what else I would need to say. Just listen to this sucker crackle, burn, and hum along! Those sharp-angled guitars scurrying about like they’re locked in a heated game of tag? Elaine Edenfield’s feverish, gravel-throated vocals? Doug Bleichner’s fiercely mechanical drumming? Hell YES. To all that.
The track’s accompanying video was directed by labelmate Greta Kline, a.k.a. Frankie Cosmos, whom Warehouse recently supported on a string of East Coast and midwest tour dates. The grainy, lo-fi clip was compiled while the two artists were on the road, and the end result is a jumbled blur of live shots interspersed with behind the scenes footage of the band hanging out and goofing off. It may not exhibit the same combustible force as its underlying track, but at least it has a whole lot of fun trying. Check it out above.
Warehouse’s sophomore full length, Super Low, is out September 30 via Bayonet Records. Pre-orders are available here.
Warehouse will celebrate the release of Super Low on Friday, September 30 at Murmur. Supporting them will be Breathers, Free Pizza (TN), and Pallas. Doors open at 9 p.m. Admission is $7. All ages.
