New York trio the Yeah Yeah Yeahs plan a new EP for July.
Due for release on July 23, the strangely titled ‘Is Is’ EP is sure to make interesting headlines.
The five-track EP contains songs written in 2004, some of which appear on the band’s Tell Me What Rockers To Swallow live DVD.
The tracklist is: ‘Rockers To Swallow,' ‘Down Boy,' 'Kiss Kiss,’ ‘Isis,’ and ‘10X10’
The EP will also feature live footage from the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Brooklyn gigs last month.

The last time I saw Fight Like Apes, their performance was a little ramshackle, to say the least. The four-piece looked like they needed a few weeks off, and quite frankly, we were concerned that one of our favourite bands might be burned out.Read More

The first new material from New York’s finest avant garde trio since last year’s superb Show Your Bones album, Is Is isn’t a new album, unfortunately.Read More
Taken from the much-anticipated Is Is EP, ‘Down Boy’ is the sound of Yeah Yeah Yeahs having a subdued moment, with Karen O’s breathy vocals all too prevalent. Like the rest of the tracks on the release, it was written in 2004, and though we’ll lap it up because they’re Yeah Yeah Yeahs and they can do what they like and we’ll love it, one can’t help but wish they’d taken this opportunity to show off their post-Show Your Bones wisdom instead.Read More
She’s one of the sassiest, not to say iconic, frontwomen in rock. Up close however, Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O is just a big pussycat. Look, we’ve even made her cry.Read More
Show Your Bones sees the crew catch their breath in the less chaotic mid-tempo pop lane. Happily, we may now discover what Nick Zinner’s ornate guitar work actually sounds like when not condensed into the over-excited, if enjoyable twenty second spurts that characterised the first record.Read More
It’s certainly one of the sexiest singles you’ll hear all year, though beware…for effect, it needs to be played really fucking loud.Read More
Machine-gun drums, staccato bursts of guitar and laid-back vocals, ‘Mars’ is, for my money, the finest three and a half minutes on the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ much-lauded debut and is far more interesting than their usual sonic bluster.Read More
Breathless, sexy, frantic – the album’s forty minutes include five minutes waiting around for a hidden extra track; don’t bother, it’s shite – Fever To Tell is a racket but an undeniably glorious one.Read More
