Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - "Same Mistake"

When Clap Your Hands announced their third album (and first in four years) last month, the accompanying teaser featured song snippets likely selected to showcase some aesthetic shifts (“louder guitars, less anxious Alec vocals, and more horns than they’re used to,” we said then). The September-released Hysterical LP’s first single “Same Mistake” comes in that shifted spirit, with strings and singer Alec Ounsworth delivering a vocal as tuneful, forlorn, and poppy as you’d hoped (occasionally in vain) on their last release Some Loud Thunder. Plus, there are strings now. The album’s out 9/12 via V2 and produced by David Byrne/Modest Mouse/Walkmen vet John Congleton. Hear/download “Same Mistake” right here:
