Karen O proves that she truly is a rock goddess in the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs music video for ‘Despair.’
Directed by Patrick Daughters (Depeche Mode, Grizzly Bear, Feist) the video begins with Ms O (seemingly drunk) in an empty bar. Upon leaving, she makes her way atop a gusty Empire State Building where bandmates Nick Zinner and Brian Chase await. As ‘Despair’ builds to its dramatic finale, the sun rises on the city of New York lifting the spirits of the YYYs as they dance in the morning light.
