Biography

It's been a few years since New York-based We Are Scientists released a new offering. With a new record label in tow, Toronto-based Dine Alone Records, Keith Murray and Chris Cain are giving fans the kind of songs that put them on the global map and that we’ve been missing from our playlists - a five-track EP entitled Business Casual, which will be released on October 15. The duo first hinted at an oncoming release when they put out a double A-side record in July 2013, exclusively to fans through their website with the tracks “Something About You,” and “Let Me Win.”

Murray & Cain recently trekked down south to the Everglades and Miami, FL and took a break from vacationing to film the music video for their new song “Return the Favor”. The video was directed by Dan Monick. Business Casual illuminates the full range of We Are Scientists, from the big chorus of “Return the Favor” to the visceral rock track “Dumb Luck”- both songs were produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Smith Westerns, Yuck) at Magic Shop in NYC. Fans of the band Berlin will be pleased to hear a smooth, pedal steel version of the classic love song, “Take My Breath Away.” The track and “Good Answer” were recorded at Atomic Heart in NYC with Claudius Mittendorfer (Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys, Muse, Interpol).

The band has always been known for their on-stage antics and humorous personalities. Some have even ventured to call them “intelligent indie-pop,” after they created a 7-episode series of television shorts entitled Steve Wants His Money, which aired on MTV UK.

We Are Scientists shocked themselves and impressed many others with their 2005 debut With Love & Squalor, which sold over 100,000 copies in the UK, and led to a sold-out UK tour, including two nights at Brixton Academy. They have since released two full-length albums Brain Thrust Mastery (Virgin Records, 2008) and Barbara(Masterswan Recordings, 2010). All three albums charted in the UK, with singles “After Hours,” “Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt,” “The Great Escape,” “It’s a Hit” and “Chick Lit” all charting in the US/UK. They have appeared on US late night talk shows, The Late Show with David Letterman, Conan and Carson Daly and performed at Coachella, Sasquatch, and All Points West festivals. In the UK, the band played the Reading and Leeds main stage and Glastonbury Festivals among other world-wide touring.
