Music Video: Yeah Yeahs Yeahs, "Down Boy" Live

No band can live up to that kind of hype, but after two albums and countless live shows, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have proven they're more than just a passing phase. I got all excited about them again after seeing this new video for "Down Boy," off the new EP coming out July 24 called Is Is.

Filmed at a live performance, the footage captures all of the legendary weirdness of the YYYs in creepy night-vision colors. Clad in a space-age Bowie-esque unitard, Karen O is her usually sassy and slightly disturbing self (be sure to watch until the end), and the song is great too, blending the band's harder punk styles with the brooding impact of "Maps."

I like a few of their songs, but frankly I caught them @ the House of Blues in Las Vegas several years ago and wasn't impressed by their live show. However, I'm willing to give them a second look.
