CMU Approved

Approved: TT

By | Published on Thursday 8 March 2018


Earlier this week, Warpaint announced that they’d signed a new artist services deal with Caroline International, which presumably means the band will be back in work mode soon. But before that, Warpaint guitarist Theresa Wayman has the release of her debut solo album as TT, ‘Lovelaws’, to get out of the way.

One of the attractions of the Warpaint sound has always been the seemingly pretty equal balance of contributions from the four members of the band. So it’s interesting to hear that stripped down to a single component. Not that this is how Wayman would pitch her solo music, I’m sure. Still, her debut single, ‘Love Leaks’, definitely has echoes of Warpaint, filled out by her unfiltered songwriting.

On the album, she aims to explore themes more difficult to delve into as part of a band. As such, ‘Love Leaks’ is written from her perspective as the mother of a now twelve year old son, “coming from a position of what it’s like to have and to get unconditional love”.

The album as a whole, she says, is “down tempo, pretty sexy, and a bit emotional”.

Wayman will be supporting Nico Mulvey on his upcoming UK tour in May, including a date at the Royal Albert Hall on 22 May. Watch the video for ‘Love Leaks’ here:
