Mosquito: the new album from Yeah Yeah Yeahs

While the glory days of the garage rock band may be over, New York 3 piece Yeah Yeah Yeahs seem to be finding their footing quite fine, even with all those synthesizers in hand. It seems that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have never been fans of conformity or order and Mosquito (the band’s fourth studio album) is a perfect continuation of this trend.

Featuring a range of scuzzy, fuzzed out vibes, Mosquito is a true art-rock album which captures the mayhem of Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase in a sexy, seductive and often psychotic way. The fragile riffs and click clack beat of Subway is a true standout, along with the tripped out Buried Alive. Having seen the band a few months ago and catching Karen O’s Stop The Virgins, I can highly recommend experiencing this album live. Karen O is a force to be reckoned with onstage.
