Karen O, Nick Zinner and Brian Chase are the three basic members of the band that was created in New York, back in 2000. They have been described as “an arty punk band” and released their first full-length record Fever to Tell in 2003, which was nominated for a Grammy and included the beautiful song Maps, one of “the 500 greatest songs of all time” according to Rolling Stone.

 

In 2006, their second album Show Your Bones was out and they were again nominated for a Grammy. Karen O told that “Show Your Bones is what happens when you put your finger in a light socket”. Gold Lion, Phenomena and Cheated Hearts are some of the singles.

 

Three years later, the third album It’s Blitz! was released with some of the band’s most danceable music, like the single Heads Will Roll.


On April 15th in UK and April 16th in US, their new album Mosquito is highly anticipated and the first single titled Sacrilege has already been out since February 25th, giving us a taste of their new work. The song was also playing in Valentino’s show for Fall/Winter 2013-14.
