Watch Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ reverse narrative music video for ‘Sacrilege’
Hot off of an epic performance at SXSW that saw the band debut tons of new material, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back today with a bizarre music video for their first single “Sacrilege” from their upcoming fourth studio album “Mosquito.”
“Sacrilege” is a departure from the band’s electronic-heavy last album “It’s Blitz!”, combining Nick Zinner’s powerful guitar riffs with Karen O’s haunting voice. Add in a 20-person gospel choir and you get “Sacrilege.”
Yeah Yeah Yeahs enlisted British model Lily Cole to star in the video. Cole stars as a promiscuous woman who gets abducted into a mysterious cult. The video is confusing as it is in reverse narrative. Check it out below and pick up “Mosquito” on April 16th via Interscope.
