The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ new video for Despair is a lot less entomological than their previous vid, Mosquito, the title track from their latest album, for which we are grateful.
Because no matter how awesome the song (and Mosquito is an AWESOME song), BUGS = EW.
Despair starts with Yeah Yeah Yeahs lead singer Karen O's lovely voice a cappella for almost a full two minutes at first, so don’t turn up your sound or clean out your ears.
They’re just being CREATIVE!
And if you’ve ever wanted to visit the top of the Empire State Building at sunrise, well — YOU’RE WELCOME!
