Artist bio

Wayman has long been at work on her own music between Warpaint tours and her commitments as a single mother. She recorded LoveLaws at her home studio in Los Angeles, on the road, in London and at Warpaints L.A. rehearsal space. Wayman plays the majority of instruments on the recordguitar, bass and synth plus programming the drum beats herself. She produced the entire album with Ivan with additional production contributions from Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes) and Money Mark (Beastie Boys), and enlisted her Warpaint bandmates for additional contributions.

Musically, the album explores Waymans early interest in beats, baselines and samplesshe cites Bjrk and trip hop as major influences. Wayman took a new approach to writing on LoveLaws: for years, she wrote stream of consciousness and tended to forego revising music or lyrics in the pursuit of a raw, unfussy sound. On LoveLaws, she found herself reworking and polishing ideas, arriving at a sound that is truly her own. As its title suggests, the album finds Wayman examining her romantic ups and downs.

Born and raised in Oregon, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Wayman formed Warpaint in Los Angeles 14 years ago. The groups three albums2010s The Fool, 2014s Warpaint and 2016s Heads Uphave gone on to receive massive critical acclaim.
