Today, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs debuted the music video for Despair, the second single off their new album Mosquito. The new album has been out for a little more than two months and the trio from New York have been playing the festival circuit, along with late night TV programs like Jimmy Fallon. It’s always been a formula with what singles the YYY’s choose from each album. The first single, tends to be loud, amazing and make you want to dance. Their second singles are usually slower, but still as captivating.
The video for Despair reminds people, incase they didn’t know, the band is from New York and boy, are they proud, as they should be. I love Los Angeles, but New York is pretty amazing for different reasons. I love the scenes on the Empire State Building, they’re proud of their city. Also, I don’t think anyone can make roots look so chic as Karen O.
