Remember when Hungrybear9562 wept in awe and wonder over a rare double rainbow in Yosemite National Park? We imagine similar feelings were expressed by tripped-out fans when psychedelic rockers Warpaint played during one at a rainy Hyde Park for the British Summer Time Festival on July 1.

The Los Angeles quartet also played a warmup gig at Portsmouth’s Wedgewood Rooms during their brief U.K. tour. Thankfully, someone recorded the band debuting a track titled “New Song.” Yes, really. And it represents something of a sonic departure for the band, and hints at a dancey direction in their forthcoming third album. In any case, it’s a good one, and anticipation for the still-to-be-formally-announced record just got a little harder to bear.

Little is known about the upcoming third album, except that it’s finished and there will be a full tour beginning in September. Perhaps we will hear some more when Warpaint rocks the Music Tastes Good Festival in Long Beach?
