Are you ready for a party this weekend? Come to Sala Apolo to see American indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!
In any discussion regarding songwriters and lyricists of 21st century indie music, Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, will feature prominently. Few have been as consistently brilliant, eclectic, and intimate; fewer still remain defiantly independent, refusing to sign deals that compromise artistic vision. That is what characterises Ounsworth’s oeuvre, especially this band which he formed in the early 2000s.
With each release since its landmark self-titled debut, he has refined and broadened his sound, indulging an ever wider set of influences. Prolific and enigmatic as ever, his recent works marry the quirky, left-field spirit of the early years with a well-earned confidence and grander sense of scale and ambition. Always heading down new avenues of song arrangement and organic connection to his audience, after nearly two decades Ounsworth remains one of music’s most distinctive voices.
