Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Friday night in Vancouver.
The Philadelphia band, led by Alec Ounsworth, is touring in support of their fourth album, Only Run.
According to a press release, the album “aims to loosely document Ounsworth’s observations of his life in music over the last 10 years. ‘Lately, I’ve been assaulted by news, both distant and near, that suggests a certain sense of frustration,’ he says. ‘ButÂ Clap Your HandsÂ Say Yeah – the entire concept of the band, the name itself – is about balancing optimism in the face of overwhelming odds.Â I’m coming around to this myself – finding that renewed sense of optimism.”
