Exclusive Premiere: Yeasayer’s Day-Glo “O.N.E.” Video

March 9th, 2010 by Rolling Stone Leave a reply »

Rolling Stone is pleased to present the video premiere of Yeasayer’s infectious new single “O.N.E.,” one of the many highlights off the band’s second album Odd Blood. The clip reunites Yeasayer with the directing duo Radical Friend, or Kirby McClure and Julia Grigorian, who previously helmed the Breaking band’s clip for “Ambling Alp.” In “O.N.E.,” we’re transported to the strangest warehouse rave party on the planet, where the shape-shifting protagonist engages in strange board games in front of an audience filled with Gagas while Yeasayer perform in the background.

According to the band, the odd game that our hero partakes in, which looks sort of like the board game Sorry with glass pieces, is based on “actual mystical charts and diagrams that represent the psychological warfare these otherworldly club kids engage in.” Definition: The day-glo video for “O.N.E.” is as much candy for the eyes as pleasant on the ears.

As part of this year’s Record Store Day on April 17th, Yeasayer will release a 12” single for “O.N.E.” boasting four different takes on the song: the album version, an instrumental take, a demo of the track and a remix by XXXchange.
