Have your dose of head bangin' music courtesy of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in this week's playlist!
Indie rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs was formed about 14 years ago and is made up of Karen O, Nick Zinner (who’s also an accomplished photographer!), and Brian Chase. Based in New York, the band got its name not from that famous Beatles song as some might have thought, but from modern New Yorker vernacular. Though not as popular as most mainstream acts, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs nevertheless has garnered a huge following at home and abroad, their successes cemented through numerous recognitions by respected institutions in the industry.
With three studio albums and a few EPs under its belt, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ music is often loud, even aggressive at times. Yet, when it comes down to it, the band does know how to tone things down for those sweet tunes (“Maps,” anyone?) – but with that unmistakable Yeah Yeah Yeahs flair all the same.
