Watch Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ reverse narrative music video for ‘Sacrilege’

In Music by Kevin Camps / March 26, 2013

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.
