Holiday Warpaint

The wonderful, wonderful Warpaint whose album 'Exquisite Corpse' I reviewed for DUMMYmag last year still never fail to stop me in my tracks with this haunting and hazy tribute that carves chunks out of the Motown classic by Mary Wells 'My Guy'.

Strung together with beautiful harmonies and the ethereal simplicity of an acoustic guitar, it is effortless. Warpaint turn this sunny pop song into a darker, more haunting story that sounds more about a beautiful yet deluded stalker who has kidnapped the object of her desire in a bid to win his love, what ever it takes.
