Every so often there is a band that manages to generate such a buzz off their own back; Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are one such band. Their self titled debut album has been a top seller in many places in the States and is due for a release here in January. To whet your appetite there is a 7″ of ‘Is This Love’. From the jangly guitar beginnings, bright keyboards and distinctive vocals that rush the lyrics past you with abandon this is a fantastic debut.
‘Clap Your Hands Say Yeah [IMPORT]’
UK ¦ US
The lightness of the music, contrasting the the tragedy of the lyrics, sways between different tempos and intensities masterfully. If the album has more like this they should be unstoppable.
