Clap Your Hands Say Yeah

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is a Brooklyn and Philadelphia based indie-rock band consisting of Alec Ounsworth, Lee Sargent, Robbie Guertin, Tyler Sargent, and Sean Greenhalgh. All the band members attended Connecticut College, in New London, Connecticut, United States

Their debut album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, recorded by Adam Lasus (Genius + Love = Yo La Tengo/The Dirt of Luck), was self-released in 2005, receiving attention from numerous MP3 blogs and a favorable review from Pitchfork Media, who gave the band a "Best New Music" commendation. The ensuing demand for the album was so great that the band were forced to re-press the CD, as the initial production run was too small. David Bowie and David Byrne have recently been spotted at some of the band’s shows, garnering them even more press. Most recently, they received praise from Rolling Stone as the ‘Hot New Band’ for 2005. On October 3, 2005, they were signed to Wichita Recordings in the UK.

The band members live in Brooklyn, with the exception of Ounsworth who lives in Philadelphia.

Frontman Alec Ounsworth has a side project (Flashy Python and the Body Snatchers), and a solo project, while drummer Sean Greenhalgh also is the frontman for Mr. Brownstone, a Guns N’ Roses tribute band.

Their single, ‘Home On Ice’, was on regular rotation on Australia’s Triple J.
