Yeasayer – O.N.E. Live Performance Video

“It’s hard having fun,” say Yeasayer in “O.N.E.”, and on their most recent tour, they lived up to that line. Although musically they were excellent, they proved the point that it’s hard having fun; they barely looked like they were enjoying themselves at all, with minimal crowd banter, smiles, or even basic fundamental passion. So, it’s a good thing when they put together music videos like this one (pun!), where they actually look like they enjoy playing their music to sold out crowds (the glamour and colored haze does help as well), since the number of people who will see this video will vastly outweigh the people who will see their live show.
