Flying can be as joyful as it can be stressful. Sometimes it is just necessary to get from one point to another. Alec Ounsworth, the mastermind behind acclaimed indie-rock band CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH, shares this fascination. At least when it comes to his choices for his own participation in NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION‘s ‘Seven Songs’ feature. To his excuse, Ounsworth was on a plane when he decided to list his seven favourite songs regarding airplanes, flying, flies and all these things. But of course, with an diversified artist like him it’s not just about the positive aspects of flying
After a decent break CLAP YOUR HANDS SAY YEAH will release their long awaited new album Only Run on June the 3rd. The fourth longplayer of the project sees Ounsworth returning to his musical roots, connecting stronger with his fans by playing living room shows, for example. ‘Back to basics’ might be the key. Ounsworth keeps it simple, also for his comments. But the music itself proves to be wisely chosen for that occasion. Find his seven choices on the following pages.
