Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back
Tue 17th Feb, 2009 in Local News
The last two years has seen an army of Karen O wannabes spawned across the globe – angst ridden lead-singers with angular hair cuts, stamping their feet whilst gesticulating wildly. And just as we started chanting “Will the real Karen O please stand-up?”, she has emerged from a dairy farm in Massachusetts to reclaim the crown of kooky. That’s right kids – the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back.
Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase are set to release their third studio album It’s Blitz! on April 10th through Modular. The album, which was produced by Dave Sitek ( TV On The Radio) and Nick Launay (Arcade Fire), features ten tracks including one called Dragon Queen – which we can only hope is a reference to the aforementioned O-clones.
Fasterlouder is pleased as spiked punch to be premiering the video for their first single Zero this Friday 20th – so stay tuned for the real Karen O.
