Originally from Brooklyn and now based out of Philadelphia, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (CYHSY for short) will be rocking BSP Kingston this Thursday night.
Formed in 2005, CYHSY are just one of the many indie rock gems to emerge from Brooklyn and have only gained momentum since then in the underground music scene. Following the departure of some band members to other musical interests, CYHSY has essentially turned into a solo project for frontman Alec Ounsworth. The band released their fourth full-length studio album Only Run on June 3rd, which features the single “Coming Down” with vocals by Matt Berninger of The National.
Opening the show is noise/art rock duo Stagnant Pools from Bloomington, Indiana who have been supporting CYHSY on a number of recent shows. The duo has been compared to acts such as Sonic Youth and Joy Division. Like Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, they have recently released Geist on June 10 which can be previewed on their Bandcamp page.
