Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the indie-pop band whose original claim to fame came in the form of homegrown garage pop is returning back to their roots in their forthcoming fourth album Only Run, due out June 3rd. Their first teaser "Coming Down" is a both harmonious and cacophonous blend of fiery synthesizers layered on top of a solid rock foundation. The cherry on top comes with the soaring and emotionally raw vocals courtesy of CYHSY front man Alec Ounsworth. Working in tandem with Ounsworth we get the perfect complementary vocal influence from The National's front man Matt Berninger who expertly sustains the vocal highs with his rich and resonant lower register. Have a listen.
