Video: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – “Despair”


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs video for “Despair” starts out with an endearing two minute acapella of Karen O at her night’s end, creating a welcome intimacy with the elusive singer. But before you get too comfortable, the band kicks it up several notches; the instrumental version of the song kicks off on a windy evening at the Empire State Building with a visual grandeur only fit for an equally magnificent tune.
