A concert film of Brooklyn three-piece Yeah Yeah Yeahs entitled Live In London is available now online.

YYY’s have a close relationship with Britain having shot to prominence in 2002 when they released their first EP Bang. The band were relative unknowns in their native US but struck a chord immediately with British audiences and were signed with progressive label Wichita.

Since then the band have become a cult sensation on both sides of the pond, yet have stayed true to their roots and still have a great fondness for Britain.

Returning last year to play a typically extravagant show in London, YYY’s took along a camera crew to record the set.

Karen O and crew played through some of their classic tunes as well as performing their most recent material from It’s Blitz. Released last year, the record saw the trio swap jagged guitar lines for antique synths and electronic beats.

The daring new direction paid off and the album turned into one their most commercially successful records to date. The trio showed their versatility and ability to cross over having gained acceptance in the dance community with singles such as Zero, which has been widely remixed.

Taking to the stage at London’s Brixton Academy last December, the band played through a spectacular set with singer Karen O on radiant form throughout.

The show was filmed by a full crew, with director Nick Wood at the helm. Totalling sixteen tracks, Live In London is the first full length documentary piece to capture YYY’s in full flow.
