After all the speculation about how challenging and weird the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album is going to be (due in no small part to the bizarre cover art and strange video ‘teasers’), judging by their new single it sounds like it’s going to be pretty amazing. The band are preceding the release of Mosquito with the track ‘Sacrilege’ and in support of the song, have commissioned one of the most intensely captivating music videos to be produced in years. Hands down. The unsettling cinematic verve of the clip complements the dramatic gospel drenched dynamics of the track. It’s a perfect blend of the sacred and profane. And yes, that is Lily Cole. Yeah Yeah Yeahs could truly be on the brink of… dare we say it… a return to form.
