Yeah Yeah Yeahs (musician)
Singer Karen O of the band Yeah Yeah Yeahs performs as part of the 2013 Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival at the Empire Polo Field on April 12, 2013 in Indio, California.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs weren't trying to write a hit on Mosquito, but Sacrilege deserves to be one, even if it's in some mutant strain of Top 40 radio. Karen O belts out a memorable vocal performance with plenty of high-register riffs to get things going and, yes, that's a gospel choir swooping in to take the song to new heights: 'And I'll kneel, and I'll pray!'
I was listening to roots reggae … I was hoping that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs could do a little bit of a roots reggae song.More quotes »
