With their new album ‘New Fragility’ arriving on 12th February, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are giving us our latest taste of what to expect, sharing new track ‘Where They Perform Miracles’.
“Most of these rituals are meant to wake you up physically and emotionally,” Alec Ounsworth says of the song. “A lot of it seems over the top, but people need that to burn something into their minds.”
“It’s pretty personal,” he adds of the upcoming record. “It’s about what I think we’re all experiencing at the moment, certainly here in the United States anyway - trying to move forward amidst an almost cruel uncertainty.”
