8-YEAH YEAH YEAHS-It’s Blitz


yeah yeah yeahs
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are one of the bands of the decade. The NY trio embodies the best and the worst of a period when style has prevailed over substance. The garage rock of their first EP raised our expectations, but debut “Fever To Tell” proved the rawness they gain plaudits for was more a well-studied pose than the trio’s real ethos, resulting in a disappointment. Karen O shortly became a fashion icon and since then the band’s ability to update their sound and bringing a couple of excellently catchy singles per album has kept them among the A-list. That’s why “It’s Blizt” came as such a surprise. YYY has partially left behind their rockier credentials and embraced a blend of electronic pop that perfectly suited their fashionista attitudes. Comparisons with Blondie and other new-wave greats followed and altogether it stands out as one of the most complete works of their career.

Released on Interscope. Available to listen in Spotify.
