By all accounts, it looks as though the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have left their rock roots in the past and are focused squarely on the pop. As evidenced by their second single in as many weeks, “Heads Will Roll”.
Thanks to our friend Kanye for making the second track from the forthcoming It’s Blitz! universally available. Much like “Zero”, it’s a synth-drenched pop song that’s more New Wave than it is rock. This is an inevitable turn for the band as they’ve grown to monumental proportions, but we’re still secretly hoping they can conjure up some of those songs that are making Corey Rusk’s retirement decision that much easier.
