In Hitchcock’s iconic film Rear Window we look onto the courtyard of a city apartment block. Spying through a telescopic lens, we’re shown the intertwined and disconnected days and nights of neighbours living intimately alone.
Theresa Wayman loves, and quotes, the film in LoveLaws – the Warpaint musician’s first solo release. It’s an ideal cinematic reference for an album that draws disparate stories and separate sonic threads into a unified look at human relationships. As the record pans through downtempo, atmospheric rock, and electronic pop styles, TT zooms in on many forms of love and lovelessness with the skill and subtlety of a great director.
LoveLaws is out now via Caroline.
