Video of the Moment #2054: We Are Scientists

By on Monday, 4th April 2016 at 6:00 pm

In mid-March, a new song by We Are Scientists was being reviewed on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music weekly evening feature Roundtable. Much was made by the panelists that it represented a different kind of sound and approach by Keith Murray and Chris Cain ahead of the release of their next album ‘Helter Seltzer’. It’ll be their fifth, which is astonishing in this day and age of bands folding after just one or two LPs. Murray and Cain have been together for over 2 decades now – equally astonishing – and Murray speaks on this and newly unveiled song ‘Too Late’:

Although the lyrics are couched in the language of a love song, it’s as much about my friendship with Chris as anything else. We’ve known each other for almost 20 years now, and despite the well-proven adage that being in a band is an excellent way to destroy a friendship, he’s still the person I most want to hang out with. It’s pretty weird to spend three months on a tour bus with someone and then, upon returning home, be able to wait only about 48 hours before calling to see if they want to go to a movie, or something.?

Definitely a bromance that has been brewing and ongoing since way before Obama and Trudeau were a thing. Watch the hilarious (as usual for We Are Scientists) promo for ‘Too Late’, in which the pair try to save the bees, below. Stay tuned for ‘Helter Skelter’, which will drop on the 22nd of April on 100% Records, just ahead of their appearances at Handmade Festival, Live at Leeds and Live in Glasgow at the end of April into early May.
