Philly band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is back with “Fireproof,” the first single released off their forthcoming record The Tourist. This plucky synth-heavy track details the dangers of being “fireproof,” or overly confident. The song features numerous bass and vocal driven buildups that trail off into instrumental interludes, giving way to introspection on the end of both listeners and singer Alec Ounsworth.
The LP features contributors Nick Krill from Teen Men, along with Jazmine Sullivan collaborator Matt Wong on bass and versatile drummer Patrick Berkery. It will be released on February 24th, so until then I’ll just keep this song on repeat to satiate my cravings for new music from these indie-rockers. It looks like their next show is on March 2nd at Johnny Brenda’s, which kicks off their tour in support of The Tourist. Grab tickets / info here and get a taste of the new album below.
