Neo-garage rock/art-punk trio from New York, formed in 2000 by vocalist Karen O and guitarist Nicolas Zinner (drummer
Brian Chase was recruitedshortly after). After their formation, the group quickly threw together a mountain of songs and
was very quick to be noticed on the New York scene.Within less than a year of existence, the group was already opening
for such high-profile acts as the White Stripes and the Strokes, part of the samegarage rock revivalism movement as the
Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The group released an EP in 2001 and toured heavily, adding to the growing buzzsurrounding the
potential stars. The Yeah Yeah Yeah's full-length debut Fever To Tell was released in 2003 to the delight of fans of
the New Yorkgarage scene.
