Warehouse just wrapped up a tour with Frankie Cosmos and Greta Kline directed their first music video “Simultaneous Contrasts” – Greta said she made this as a way to show the colorful personalities behind the music.
Greta said: “Touring with Warehouse was so special. It was truly amazing to watch them perform every night, and to get to spend time with them and get to know them outside of the shows too. I filmed a lot of moments of our time together and wanted to use this video to show how beautiful, charismatic, and cool they all are– individually and together. Their album is so sick, and I was so excited to get to make a visual to go along with this song.”
Taking inspiration from the 1980’s Athens, GA scene (Pylon, R.E.M., The B-52’s) and having a mutual taste for Stereolab and Abstract Expressionist visual art, Warehouse invoke a post-punk style characterized by the spidery and interlocking guitar riffs of Alex Bailey and Ben Jackson, filled by the effortless drums of Doug Bleichner and the agile racing bass riffs of Josh Hughes. The full and textural sound provides a unique body for vocals, added by Elaine Edenfield, whose lyrics can be described as sidewinding and oblique, oscillating quickly between melodicism and contrary roughness, using vocals as more of a physical tool of expression than as a glossy harmony to the sound.
“super low” is a more concise continuation of ‘Tesseract,’ while still carrying the prior album’s organic and wildly sprawling nature. Largely written in a notorious punk house that was torn down to build a parking garage, the album was finished in a new environment: across from a food mart called ‘super low.’ The title connotes stark change, but it also hints at the additional psychological undertones of the album’s meaning, to move down into more darkly subconscious and deeply endogenous areas of yourself in order to work through them and out. Also contrastingly literal, it denotes Warehouse’s self-evident, uncontrived and rough-around-the-edges nature.
Warehouse is: Ben Jackson (guitar), Elaine Edenfield (vocals), Josh Hughes (bass), Alex Bailey (guitar), and Doug Bleichner (drums)
