Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Skeletons

by Rich Morris Rating:5 Release Date:2010-02-01

Another release from last year's synth-tastic It's Blitz! album, which under-performed commercially but dominated indie night dancefloors. 'Skeletons' is one of the album's slower moments and appears to be a by-numbers YYYs' weepy, with Ms O putting on her best baby lost girl voice and murmuring senseless lyrics, until about two minutes in when it suddenly and quite unnecessarily morphs into 'Mull of Kintyre' by sodding Wings. And, well, it never recovers, basically. As part of this digital single 'package', however, you also get an acoustic version of the same song reimagined as a lovely, wistful ballad with a ramshackle Cowboy Junkies vibe, transforming the song into a minor YYYs classic.
