Clap yer hands

WORDS: CHRISTINE

They’re an eight-piece New York band made up of trendy shaggy-haired lads and sulky-looking girls in sparkly vintage dresses, and they’ve been heavily hyped by Playboy and NME. Yes, on paper The Phenomenal Handclap Band sound like worthy targets of instant ridicule, but defy the urge to be a hater and check out their glorious take on spaced-out disco, Mamas-n-Papas style harmonies, 70s psych-funk and retro easy listening.
