Review: Yeah Yeah Yeahs- ‘Mosquito’

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Mosquito

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs were one of those bands I was really into during the “Rock Revival” of the early 2000’s thanks to their distinctly New York Punk sound and Karen O’s undeniable presence and charisma as a frontwoman.

Video: Yeah Yeah Yeahs Perform “Sacrilege” on ‘Letterman’

posted by Oscar April 6, 2013

Not sure how I missed this, but the Yeah Yeah Yeahs went on Letterman to perform “Sacrilege” with Karen O doing her best Elvis impression (check out that jumpsuit!) and there was even a full choir to accompany them for the second half of the song (just like in the studio version). The performance was powerful and it really demonstrated the ability that this New York band has to put on a good show. Look out for the album, Mosquito, when it drops April 16.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs- “Sacrilege”

posted by Oscar February 25, 2013

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back! The New York band have released the first single off of their upcoming album, Mosquito, dropping April 16. The single’s artwork was done by Beomsik Shimbe Shim, who also did the artwork for the new album.

“Sacrilege” starts with a mellow intro that progresses into a decent 80-90’s like pop/New Wave track with the benefit of Karen O’s unique vocals. The track really comes to life at the 2:21 mark when the trio are joined by a 24-piece choir! It’ll bring you chills.

Hear the track after the jump. Continue Reading
