"'New Fragility' is the sixth album by indie band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, the music project led by Philadelphia-born Alec Ounsworth. After the excitement around their much-hyped debut album in 2005 died down, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah have have operated at their own pace and made records on their terms. Since 2014, Ounsworth has been the sole member. 'New Fragility' is his first fully independent record, released on his own label, and once more the album balances widescreen indie-rock and post-punk with his pinched, David Byrne-esque vocals."
