Reason: needs audio for Walter Demo

Paintscraper is a song performed by C-Side.


Paintscraper is a electronic hard rock song. It starts out with electric bass melodies, then vocals are added. After that, electric guitar melodies are heard, followed by the intro melody with synth added in. Then, the vocal-heavy chorus is heard.


SRL Musicology Dept. back with a huge scoop! You're listening to "Paintscraper," the latest offering from C-Side. Musically, they've welded a shiny rainbow melody to a thrash-metal skeleton and added all kinds of chrome spikes. Turn up the volume and shake the whole house!

Other versions

Paintscraper (Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitational 2022)

This version played in Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitational 2022 during the waiting screens. It has a proper outro and is played in mono audio.

Paintscraper (Walter Demo)

A shorter demo of Paintscraper featuring roughly the first half of the song appears on the third disc of Splatune 3, made entirely by C-Side's drummer Walter. This version has different instrumentation and features Walter's higher-pitched vocals. In tweets from Baker included in the booklet that comes with Splatune 3, he states that this demo was the original version of the song and says that it is "very silly and ridiculous, but it has a unique charm to it".


Paintscraper refers to a tool used to scrape paint off of walls, likely in reference to ink.
