TT, also known as Theresa Wayman, vocalist and guitarist of Warpaint, releases her debut solo album, LoveLaws. The 10-track colleciton reflects Wayman's personal growth and growth as a musician over the past fourteen years, as well as enabling her to explore ideas that are otherwise difficult in a band setting. The album was written by a mother of a twelve year old son "coming from a position of what it's like to have and to get unconditional love."
The record is also about the ups and downs of romance, viewed through Wayman's experience as a traveling musician, where the routine can be maddening in its loneliness and where relationships are difficult. The songs were her way of processing this loneliness. The result is an album that, in Wayman's words, is: "down tempo, pretty sexy, and a bit emotional. I'm a romantic person in a world where a relationship is difficult. But I also needed to be on my own and not force having a relationship."
TT is a one-woman band on LoveLaws: she plays bass, guitar, and synth on the album, and she programmed the drum beats on most of the tracks. She also had a little help from Warpaint bandmates Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass) and Stella Mozgawa (drums). Wayman co-produced the album with her brother Ivan with additional production contributions from Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, Bat For Lashes) and Money Mark (Beastie Boys).
