Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 'Skeletons': Watch the spooky new video here

The band that once commanded Show Your Bones has finally offered a quid pro quo in a new video for “Skeletons,” the latest single from last year’s EW-adored It’s Blitz.

The clip is helmed by Karen O’s boyfriend Barney Clay, who matches the song’s woozy balladry in strikingly atmospheric black and white, with ghostly graveyard spooks, O channeling silent-film icon Theda Bara, and more dry ice than a magician convention. Watch it below:

What do you think, readers—in the pantheon of YYYs videos, from low-budget stunners to high-concept desert scenes and street-dancer shenanigans, where does “Skeletons” fall?
