When it comes to band loyalty, indie rock fans are especially fickle. Yes, we’ve all got our favorites, but we’re also perfectly content to attach ourselves onto a buzz band one year and tuck them away in an empty shoe box in the back corner of our closet the next.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah came along in the mid ’00s and dove right into a pool of attention. After the indie rock world entered into a passionate love affair with their debut album, it seemed close to inevitable that they’d fall victim to a classic case of the hyper-buzz comedown. A weird thing happened, though. They stuck around, and they’re proving to be a lot more than another Brooklyn buzz band with a weird name. After only a short time with this album, I might already go out on a limb and say this is the band’s best release yet.
The band’s third album Hyterical comes out September 20th, and you can stream it via the link below. Shoutout to WAWSTSF for the heads up.
