Luxury listening. It’s as simple as that. We Are Scientists play in Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, Wiesbaden, and Cologne this month. There’s no excuse not to catch them live.
Is it pop? Is it rock? Is it punk? Yes. Or no. It’s a wild and energetic mixture ringing out to big ones like Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, and once in a while to Muse. Then again, sometimes it’s much less rock and much more American pop bands that come to mind. But with an alternative twist or a surprising chord. It’s not easy to put a label on this music. And that’s good.
We Are Scientists just released a new album titled Megaplex. It’s a collection of rock songs and pop songs and punk songs and indie ones. But they fit together so smoothly because of the atmosphere of the album. These guys have a special sound that’s constant at the core; no matter what style they move into. Moreover, the characteristic, very insisting male voice creates a neat string that binds it all together. It fits nicely and it’s interesting.
Actually it’s refreshing listening to a band that dares to challenge the normal musical styles and to surprise it’s listeners. It proves that these guys are truly talented.
And here’s some more proof: Two years ago when We Are Scientists released their fifth studio album, Helter Seltzer, Chris Coady (Beach House, Future Islands) did the mixing and Greg Calbi (Noel Gallagher, Perfume Genius, Yeah Yeah Yeahs) the mastering. Yes, it’s produced with perfection and a pleasure listening to it.
They’ve existed since 2010 and there’s no doubt these professionals know how to play great gigs. Did I mention they’ve got a reputation of being incredibly charming? Well, they do. So if you’d like an evening full of energy and want a spectacular musical experience you’ve got absolutely no reason not to go; they play allover Germany.
