Phenomenal Handclap Band Debut New Video "Baby"
The Phenomenal Handclap band are a musical enigma: on one hand, they are responsible for the seemingly straight-to-Sesame Street hit single "15 to 20," while also able to evoke their inner white-boy-soul/R&B (see: Meyer Hawthrone) which is depicted in the new video above for "Baby". Their debut, self-titled album was released back in June, yet PHB has carried some mild-mannered buzz with them since; they are Manhattan-based, so that may have something to do with it. When any band has a large brass section to wield at their finger tips, if done correctly, music is hard to get wrong.
