Indie darlings Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have been bringing hands together since 2005, and their name perfectly describes what happens at their live shows. Elaborating on their already-creative arrangements, the band creates a decidedly upbeat atmosphere in concert, treating fans to buoyant singles like “Is This Love?” and “The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth” as they join the crowd in collective clap-alongs. Touring in support of a new album in 2014, the band continues to bring the can’t–miss party to venues across the country.
Philadelphia-based indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah became overnight critical favorites with their self-titled 2005 debut, dominating music blogs with their sunny indie-pop earworms and garnering a “Best New Music” nod from Pitchfork. Their 2007 follow-up was an even bigger hit, landing on the Billboard 200 and leading to high-profile gigs including appearances at Lollapalooza and Coachella. With a new album in the works for 2014, core members Alec Ounsworth and Sean Greenhalgh will hit the road for a highly anticipated tour in support of the release.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
“Clap Your Hands Say Yeah was really fun to see live! The lead singer Alec Ounsworth is a great singer, and there was great energy throughout the show.”
“CYHSY put on a charged and vibrant show with a set that drew the audience in and tapped into a bit of primal rage. A few songs got the crowd moving and thrashing, but swaying and head-bobbing were the popular moves for the night.”
“The songs captured the essences of their recorded versions, but every musician seemed to be putting something extra in. More drum variations, more keyboard coloring, and of course the high speed strumming trickier than ever.”
