What have the Yeah Yeah Yeahs been up to?

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs were active from 2000 to 2014, and reunited in 2017. They were nominated for two Grammy’s at this past Sunday’s awards, for Best Alternative Music Album in Cool It Down, and Best Alternative Music Performance in “Spitting Off the Edge of the World.” They lost both to Wet Leg.
