The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are certainly not shy about striking out and trying whatever pleases them whether we’re talking about their you-never-know-what-you’re-gonna-get music to Karen O’s epic fashion sense. That’s why fans shouldn’t be surprised by their wild remix of 2013’s “Under the Earth.” Adding a helluva trip-hip sound to the song, the accompanying video is meant to highlight the nonprofit Drop in the Bucket, which helps construct water sanitation systems at schools throughout Sub-Saharan Africa.
Drop in the Bucket is a Los Angeles based non-profit that builds water wells and sanitation systems at schools in sub-Saharan Africa. Drop In The Bucket believes clean water is a basic human right that must be met in order to help people break the cycle of poverty.
Our mission is to build wells and sanitation systems at schools throughout sub-Saharan Africa, enabling youth to fully harness the life-changing power of an education.
Our goal is to provide schools and communities with tools they need to improve child health, increase school enrollment rates, and promote gender equality.
Check out the video — as well as the work being done by Drop in the Bucket — and prep yourself for the water drop trip-hop.
