Indie rockers Yeah Yeah Yeahs are taking "a bit of a hiatus", according to frontwoman Karen O.

The singer has revealed the Gold Lion himakers, who released their last album Mosquito in 2013, are taking a break from each other until they feel inspired to get back to work.

She tells NME magazine, "We're on a bit of a hiatus at the moment, so nothing yet. We have to wait to get the urge, get that itch. The time needs to be right and we're Ok waiting for that, I think. When we do it'll be like muscle memory, this unspoken thing between the three of us where it all just... locks in."
