Handclaps and Harmonies
Decked out in scandalous tight “weans” (white jeans), plus matching white neckties and suspenders, Handclaps and Harmonies are as squeaky clean as they look.
Their florid walls of ‘60s-pop sounds never sink into ironic postures, and for a sextet of such fine young dudes the absence is, though obvious, eminently sweet. Everything lovely about The Turtles and The Zombies is manifest in the Fort Worth band’s four-part(y) harmonies and bright brass passages. H&H is working on its second album, the follow-up to last year’s Handclaps and Harmonies Presents … Handclaps and Harmonies. Three songs from the new disc are up now at www.myspace.com/handclapsandharmonies.
Along with Tartufi and Matthew & the Arrogant Sea, Handclaps and Harmonies will play this Sunday at Hailey’s at 122 Mulberry St. in Denton. For more info, call 940-323-1160.
