Yeah Yeah Yeahs Gold Lion Single

The pouting pearl of modern indie, Karen O firmly places her self in the middle, vocally speaking, as though she is mediating a battle betwixt Alison Goldfrapp and Katie Jane Garside. The slowly punctuating percussion of Brian Chase provides a musical gap for the grinding guitars of amateur photographer, Nick Zinner to slide into and rub off the back of Karen's singing, thus, proffering escapism in abundance.

The dreamy subject matter of this single brings the New Yorkers within the radio-friendly pop enclosure, to give them possibly, a wider appeal than they may have previously enjoyed.
