Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 101

Get excited for Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! No, that was not a multitude of grammar mistakes. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, or CYHSY for short, is a Brooklyn-based band known for their indie-rock band sound. Its five members met at ConnecticutCollege, and later decided to form a band in 2004.

After releasing their self-titled first studio album in 2005, CYHSY signed to a record label in the U.K., allowing them to gain popularity overseas as well as on the home front. CYHSY’s second album, Some Loud Thunder, was released in 2007, shortly before the band took a break to pursue various music endeavors outside the band.

Though a couple of the band’s members continue to be part of separate side projects, they return to the music scene as one band. The release of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah’s third studio album, Hysterical, in 2011 proved their loyalty to the band, each other, and their fans.

Check out their music video for “Maniac,” released last September.
