    The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Karen O, just threw a lump of coal in everyone's stocking, by sharing news that there won't be any new music from the band in coming months.

    Opening up in an interview with NME, O says "We're on a bit of hiatus at the moment, so nothing yet. We have to wait to get the urge, get that itch. The time needs to be right and we're OK waiting for that, I think," she said.

    The band's 2013 Mosquito failed to gain traction with fans, but O says it's not stopping the band from working on future music together. "It's a pretty dangerous hole to fall down, reading your own reviews, so it's not something I personally do," she said. "All you can do is try to make albums you can stand by and be proud of, that are a snapshot of where you were at the time. It won't stop us, nothing like that. It'll be like muscle memory, this unspoken thing between the three of us where it all just locks in."

    While we patiently wait for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to be inspired, enjoy Karen O's official video for "Rapt" off her solo release Crush Songs.
