Clap Your Hands Say Yeah got back into gear earlier this year with a new album (titled Hysterical), and a return to the road. They had been off the grid for quite some time, and have distanced themselves a bit from their "internet buzz band" label (they were the first internet buzz band! According to our memory). They recently poked fun at that era, telling Fuse that listeners will want to buy their latest release: "because... 2005 was a great year, you might want to relive it all over again. [We are the] greatest internet buzz band of the last ten years." This is a great time to remind you that David Bowie showed up to our Movable Hype show back in 2005 to see the band, right before they took off.
Recently we filmed the quintet for our Gothamist House series—check it out below:
