The divisive Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (let’s just call them CYHSY from here, yeah?) went on a few years hiatus after their second just-as-divisive-as-the-debut album, Some Loud Thunder, well, divided everybody. ‘Same Mistake’ was our first taster of their forthcoming album, Hysterical, and those vocals haven’t gone away – and the band have been listening to a lot of 80s music. ‘Maniac’ is a start-stop affair that is pretty much everything fans of CYHSY want. You can download both tracks below for the price of one email, entered twice (After the jump). CYHSY play Electric Picnic at the beginning of September. Hysterical is out around the same time.
