Artist: We Are Scientists | Album: TV en Francais, Sous la Mer | Released: 2015 | Label: 100% Records | Genre: Rock
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 bandвЂ™s preconceptions and rebuilt their very understanding of reality, comes TV en Français, Sous la Mer, a full-length re-envisioning of last yearвЂ™s song cycle. The 8-track collection will be released on April 21st via Dine Alone Records, and available exclusively on 12вЂќ vinyl; download code included.
Darker, more spacious, with distorted Rhodes and delayed Farfisas replacing electric guitars, вЂ¦Sous la Mer (вЂњunder the seaвЂќ) 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.
