TT (aka THERESA WAYMAN of WARPAINT)
ANNOUNCES DEBUT SOLO ALBUM ‘LOVELAWS’
+ UK TOUR WITH NICK MULVEY IN MAY 2018
Today TT, also known as Theresa Wayman (vocalist and guitarist of Warpaint) announces her debut solo album, ‘LoveLaws’, released 18th May on LoveLeaks/Caroline International.
‘LoveLaws’ reflects both Wayman’s personal growth and also her growth as a musician over the past 14 years, as well as enabling her to explore ideas that are otherwise difficult in a band setting. ‘LoveLaws’ is written by a mother of a 12 year old son, “Coming from a position of what it’s like to have and to get unconditional love.” The album is also about the ups and downs of romance, viewed through Wayman’s experience as a traveling musician, where the routine can be maddening in its loneliness and where relationships are difficult. The songs were her way of processing this loneliness. The result is an album that, in Wayman’s words, is, “Down tempo, pretty sexy, and a bit emotional. I'm a romantic person in a world where a relationship is difficult. But I also needed to be on my own and not force having a relationship.”
She’s a one-woman band on ‘LoveLaws’: Wayman plays bass, guitar & synth on the album as well as programming the drum beats on most of the tracks. She also had a little help from Warpaint bandmates Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass) and Stella Mozgawa (drums). Wayman co-produced the album with her brother Ivan with additional production contributions from Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes) and Money Mark (Beastie Boys).
Critically acclaimed LA quartet Warpaint have been confounding expectation since the band’s inception in 2004. They have put out three LPs and one EP to critical acclaim, focusing on their “hypnotic” and “sensual” sound of “bedroom folk.” The band will be playing London’s All Points East Festival in May 2018.
