Playlouder interviews the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, focusing on their upcoming single and album.
You’ve been called everything from the future of rock ‘n roll to the most exciting sweat-rock band ever to have existed. Do you deserve such high praise?
KAREN O: It’s flattering that people like us, but we’re still a really young band and we don’t want to be distracted or pressurised by people making such grand claims. Of course we love people coming to our shows and telling us how much they love our songs, but we’re not convinced by all the hype surrounding us and we’re trying our hardest not to listen to any of it. We’re more interested in surviving and keeping our shit together.
