Just in time for its release on Record Store Day tomorrow, We Are Scientists have unveiled a second track from their limited edition 8-track disc “TV en Français, Sous la Mer”.
This is a fan favourite from the original LP, which has been reworked for the occasion in a style that fans will recognise from the 2005 rarities compilation “Crap Attack”.
In Spring of 2014, We Are Scientists released TV en Français, their fourth studio album. 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. 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.
Take a listen to “Don’t Blow It, Under The Sea’ below.
