At a time when pop music has clashed with indie head on producing some of the best tunes in ages, New York City has spawned We Are Scientists, a 3 piece that attack this style of music with both grace and gratitude and come out smelling of roses.You are probably familiar now with their flagship track The Great Escape which is the second single to be released this year through Virgin Records. It’s compelling hooks and distinguished danceable beats eat into your memory and lock themselves in for night after night but this act are not one hit wonders. Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt is another classic released as a single but the album overall does get into your system and allows you to discover the band at their best. For a debut album, We Are Scientists have come from nowhere to becoming one of the best acts of 2005. With Love and Squalor is out now….go get it.
