We Are Scientists

We Are Scientists announce TV en Français, Sous la Mer

In spring of 2014, We Are Scientists released TV en Français, their fourth studio album, to wide acclaim and a top-40 chart position in the UK. Now, after a year of global touring that shook loose the band’s preconceptions and rebuilt their very understanding of reality, comes TV en Français, Sous la Mer, a full-length re-envisioning of last year’s song cycle. The 8-track collection will be released on April 21st via Dine Alone Records, and available exclusively on 12” vinyl; download code included.

Darker, more spacious, with distorted Rhodes and delayed Farfisas replacing electric guitars, …Sous la Mer (“under the sea”) draws the lyrics closer and casts them in a bluer light. The results, less danceable than those of the ancestor album, are lush enough to accompany recreational late-night bathing, but lively enough to soundtrack an aimless stroll through a foreign city. PRESS HERE to watch the music video for “Overreacting, Under The Sea.”

We Are Scientists will also hit the road this April for a select run of dates in the Southwest, including a performance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles with rock band Kaiser Chiefs. See full routing below, and for more information visit http://wearescientists.com/shows/.
