♪ Zero (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 2009) ♪

At any time, it feels like Karen O is about to break into “Heart of Glass”. Of course it does not happen, like the typical promise: “yeah, yeah, we’ll get there.” Instead we are nowhere, even if the catchy opening electro-guitars have laid the path clearly for us. Which is a good thing because where is zero anyway? Somewhere here, a bit there. There’s that push-pull so expected of alt acts finally redefining their previous act. But the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are not moving into “Pretty in Pink” territory; not yet, though it does sound so “Right Here, Right Now” of Jesus Jones fame, not Kylie Minogue. Lame then? But here we are amused, and here we are dancing anyway.
