The hint is in their name

The Phenomenal Handclap Band are a relatively recent find for me, but I’m stunned at everything I hear by them. They’re an 8 piece band who all hail from Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. They have crafted a sound that is equal parts anthemic, dancefloor-oriented and orchestral, borrowing elements from progressive rock, disco, electro, and psychedelia. One thing is for sure, they’re SO 70’s! I urge you to check them out – I think I may be falling slightly in love. Here’s two of their tracks. ‘Baby’ for me, is already an all time classic. Amazing.

The Phenomenal Handclap BandYou’ll Disappear

I imagine the guys are gonna be AMAZING live – jump to their myspace for their tour dates. Londoners – they’re playing at Hoxton Bar and Kitchen on the 22nd September! (See you there).

  1. It’s a good album, especially ‘Youll Disappear’ and ’15-20′ – BUT the drummer doesn’t know how to elaborate, and really lets everyone else down. Plus, the guest vocalist style becomes a bit disparate over a whole LP. Still, genuinely good time music.

  2. […] got around to finding out who the hell it was. Fast forward seven months and even though HazMat had blogged about TPHCB back in September, I hadn’t realised until this afternoon that the band I’d loved […]

  3. They are phenomenal live. Top two at great escape. Them an C Mon & Kypsi
