Lizzie Reid : “Warpaint”

Glaswegian singer-songwriter Lizzie Reid (who used to be a member of Dead Pony before they were Dead Pony and is also the granddaughter of the great Jimmy Reid) releases her best and most sonically expansive single to date in the shape of “Warpaint.” Musically it’s a shimmering emotive guitar-driven tune that celebrates the notion of seizing the day.

‘Warpaint’ is the third track to be taken from Lizzie’s upcoming EP ‘Mooching’, due out via sevenfoursevensix (Matilda Mann, Matt Maltese, tinyumbrellas) on August 24th. The track was co-written with Andy Monaghan (Frightened Rabbit) and follows on from ‘How Do I Show My Love?’ and ‘Bible.’

Speaking about the song, Lizzie said: “‘Warpaint’, to me, is a song that says enjoy today and stop worrying about the details. There are challenges ahead but for now, live in the moment, enjoy making music and go out and experience new things.“I feel that its story is something that most people can relate to: you fancy someone who doesn’t fancy you back!* It’s not the end of the world because the relationship was over before it ever began. There’s no point in getting upset about such things. It’s a lighthearted song and it gives me a chance to let loose for a bit when I perform it live.”
