We never really need to explain what that is but we both know when it’s missing or when we’ve hit it.” The pair, AKA Tempers, release their ‘Fundamental Fantasy’ EP via The Vinyl Factory today.

‘The Tourist’, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!’s fifth album!

The Tourist Album Cover

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah! are set to release their fifth album ‘The Tourist’ on 24th February 2017.
