If the Colin Hanks-vehicle The Great Buck Howard wasn’t such a bomb, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah could have had a breakout moment. See, the band, who play themselves in the film, played some songs during the film and pop up with a new track (“Telling the Truth and Going Away”) during the end credits. Normally, you have to pay to have that kind of exposure, but here they are, in a film no one cares about. Tough break.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah are reportedly working on new music. [Stereogum]
