Discovered in the wake of the Strokes popularity and the subsequent garage rock revival, New York’s art punk trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are comprised of singer Karen O, guitarist Nicolas Zinner, and drummer Brian Chase. O met Chase at Ohio’s Oberlin College and met Zinner through friends after she transferred to NYU. Zinner and O formed the band in 2000; originally, they were a folky duo called Unitard, but they went electric after being inspired by Ohio’s legendary avant punk scene. After the drummer they recruited initially bowed out, Chase joined the lineup. The band has recorded three studio albums; the first, Fever to Tell, was released in 2003. The second, Show Your Bones, was released in 2006 and was named the second best album of the year by NME Their third studio album, It’s Blitz!!, was released on March 31, 2009  in the USA and on April 6, 2009 in the rest of the world. It was recently announced that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ frontwoman has produced the music for the Spike Jonze adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.

yeah yeah yeah

To MTV Karen revealed: “I got involved because of Spike- I guess there is a child like innocence about my music or my persona that he always just kind of dialled into.“So I guess he thought I should make music for Where the Wild Things Are and I assembled a group of mostly rock musicians to make the music including Nick and Brian (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs)” .
