Clap Your Hands Say Yeah "The Tourist" Album Trailer

East Coast indie rock outfit, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah make finely crafted pop centered on lead singer/songwriter Alec Ounsworth. The band was formed in Massachusetts around 2004. The band's full length debut album, 2005's Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, initially gained traction with help from a wide network of bloggers and internet support. There was so much online interest in the band that NPR even did a feature on the emerging phenomena of Internet band buzz using CYHSY as the prime example.

CYHSY delivered a new record in 2017, The Tourist. Like previous Clap Your Hands Say Yeah records, The Tourist nods to Ounsworth’s musical heroes—a group that includes artists such as John Cale, Robert Wyatt, Tom Waits and Nick Cave. However, this album also shows a natural progression from previous records. “Better Off” and “The Vanity Of Trying”are lush, keyboard-augmented songs,while “A Chance To Cure” and “Ambulance Chaser” are rhythmically askew, and the sighing “Loose Ends” is delicate, acoustic-based folk-rock. Catch the band live in the Back Room on Saturday, August 24th!
