Speaking to NME back in April about their forthcoming new album, Warpaint’s Theresa Wayman shared some details about the record’s subject matter.

“There’s a song from my higher self to my lower self on there, and a song about not needing to have anchors to anything,” Wayman said.

“Em [Kokal] wrote a song called ‘Trouble’ that’s really cool. She’s like [sings], ‘I’m in trouble again’. It’s about always feeling like you’re doing something wrong. It reminds me of when I was young and it was Saturday morning and my mum would wake me up because she didn’t want me to sleep in and waste my day. It made me feel guilty for the rest of my life.

“Em also wrote a song about the band and our relationship, and trying to evolve or grow with people who you’ve known for so long.”
