Six years before #whothefuckisarcadefire trended on Twitter, music fans in the Netherlands were asking an equally pressing question: Le Guess Who? The answer has nothing to do with Bachman, Cummings and crew. It’s the name of a fresh and dynamic music festival, held annually in the city of Utrecht.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah ask a lot of their listeners. If the band wants the sort of reaction their name demands, the onus is on them to give the audience a reason to break out and shout. And of their past two releases, only one has yielded such a result. After a four-year hiatus, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have returned with a new release, Hysterical.
