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.

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.

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.
2007-08-16 - REVIEW
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
