  The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are back with their fifth album Mosquito and just yesterday released a video for the single Despair. This is my favorite track off the album, so naturally I was pretty excited about the video. It first opens with Karen O singing a capella in a bar, which is absolutely beautiful. I was really happy to see this extended version of the song used for the video. She has such a strong voice, yet it's so vulnerable at the same time. Everything works so well together in this video. The images are simple and fitting to the song without taking away from it. The ending of this is the best though; I just can't help but smile whenever I see the band having such a fun time on top of the Empire State Building. And can we just talk about how great that yellow pantsuit is?
