Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Transparent Gold
Album DescriptionCYHSY met while attending Connecticut College in the late 90's. Each member did tours in a variety of campus bands, many of which consisted of at least two members of CYHSY. The five members, Alec Ounsworth, Tyler Sargent, Lee Sargent, Robbie Guertin, and Sean Greenhalgh, graduated between 2000 and 2002, moving on to careers and advanced degrees in the northeast U.S. Several more post-graduation bands were formed and disbanded. Finally, by late 2003/early 2004, these five got together in Brooklyn to form yet another Conn College band. This marked the first time that these five classmates had all played in the same band. They quickly gained critical acclaim and managed to sell tens of thousands of records despite the lack of a record deal.
