CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH
Brooklyn five piece Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are one of a bunch of north American bands – The Shins, Modest Mouse, and Broken Social Scene among them – revising what is meant by indie pop…
Stretching its meat-and-potatoes formula to include dizzy exuberance, wayward melodies, varying time signatures and harp and harmonica detail alongside guitars and synth. Their self-titled debut album sold around 25,000 copies through the Internet and word-of-mouth alone – all packaged and shipped from the band’s front room – before they landed a deal.
They play Latitude’s Obelisk Arena on Saturday.
Latitude takes place July 12 – 15 at Henham Park, Southwold, Suffolk.
