|last update : 08-10-2007 21:26|
|Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a New York City-based alternative rock band made up of singer Karen O, drummer Brian Chase and guitarist Nick Zinner.
Their music is a mix of retro styles with heavy rock and punk guitars, synthetic sounds, and screaming, erotic, bluesy vocals, and extremely sexual and creative costumes designed by Christian Joy. They were formed in the late summer of 2000.
They have recorded four studio albums, "Fever to Tell", their sophomore album "Show Your Bones", the "Yeah Yeah Yeahs" (or "Master" EP), and the "Is Is" EP, which features songs written during the "Fever to Tell" era which were not recorded until 2007.
Nick Zinner also plays in Head Wound City, a thrash metal supergroup with members of the Blood Brothers and The Locust, and has toured with Bright Eyes for their album, Digital Ash In A Digital Urn, also Brian Chase has an active side project in his improvisational band, The Seconds.
In the summer 2006 Imaad Wasif joined the band for touring purposes as Nick Zinner couldn't play two guitar parts as he could in the studio, and also to play keyboards.
Karen O and Nick Zinner used to live in a flat with Jimmy Shaw and [artist]Emily Haines from Metric.
Karen O now lives in L.A., however her cat (and the boys) stayed in NYC.
