, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs vocalist revealed how the dark times members of the group were going through personally led the music to become an escape, as well as returning to their lo-fi roots. "Emotionally, it's been a rollercoaster," she explained. "Being back in New York is intense for me. I've gone through an identity crisis. It's been very emotionally intense for Nick (Zinner, guitar), too. He was going through a breakup while we were making the album. It was just all kind of down."
