David Knight - 9th Feb 2010

Gorgeously ghostly new video for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs by Barney Clay - who has just signed to Partizan.

The ethereal Yeahs appear in the smoke above the tombs, graves, and mausoleums at the amazing Hollywood Forever cemetery (tagline: "Resting Place of Hollywood's Immortals"), where old-time Hollywood legends like Cecil DeMille, Rudolph Valentino and Jayne Mansfield are interred.

Beautifully shot by Shawn Kim, this actually has the visual craft of a classic black and white Hollywood movie - but clearly another variation of the bands' love of horror and exploitation stuff, also evident in Barney's set of virals for the current album It's Blitz, The Snakesweat Trilogy.

He's just signed to Partizan in the US for worldwide representation.
