I never really cared about checking out California based We Are Scientists before but when a friend told me to listen to their 5th album "Helter Seltzer", I did and I´m glad I did too.
It´s a very charming record that feels like a perfect combo of 80´s new romantic sounds and new millenium electro pop, the track "Hold on" even bring thoughts to A Flock of Seagulls.
The band is now a duo featuring Keith Murray - lead vocals/guitar and Chris Cain - bass but synthesizers has an equally important part of their sound as guitars.
This is music that will put a big smile on your face.
Highlights : In my head, Too late
