It's been years since Clap Your Hands Say Yeah became music sensations with the help of the internet and music blog, Now, releasing their fifth full-length album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah returns with The Tourist, Which might be their most appalling record yet.
The Tourist picks up right where they left off in 2014, when they released Only Run. Executing The Talking Head-esque, early CYHSY's work. Alec Ounsworth voice, mixes with a blend of synthesizers, harmonicas, guitars, and stacks of effects in such foolproof way,
Ounsworth, suggests that this album represents a low-point of his life, the imagery of each track - such as, "Fireproof" laminating "what a drag it is to win" - shows it. The Tourist is intense, emotional, and incredibly dark, it highlights the level of creativity that keeps music careers going longer than anyone could imagine.
