Biography

We Are Scientists shocked themselves and impressed many others with their 2005 debut With Love & Squalor, which sold over 150,000 copies in the UK on the strength of dancefloor standbys Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt; It's A Hit; and The Great Escape, as well as nine other songs that, to all appearances, people also liked. Twenty months of near-constant touring culminated in a sold out ... Read more in Amazon's We Are Scientists Store

With their daft facial hair and questionable fashion sense, tank-top sporting Brooklyn supernerds We Are Scientists resemble those eccentric mathematics lecturers one use to see on Open University in the early 1970s. Do not be deceived by this veil of foolishness for With Love and Squalor is a splendidly dexterous debut, a lubricated salvo of trim pop-punk cramming 13 songs into an honorably waffle-free 36 minutes.

Obvious touchstones include Franz Ferdinand (on fun setting) and the wit, jerk and pop inclination of XTC circa Drums And Wires and Black Sea. Exploding into action with the adrenalin swoop of "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt" and "This Scene Is Dead" and taking in such other fine moments as the reggaefied "Can't Lose", the Terrorvision-meets-Buzzcocks "Callbacks" and nods to the mope-rock of The Cure on the philosophical experience-is-the-best-teacher procrastination of "Textbook".

With Love And Squalor places "We Are Scientists" in line for this years Nobel Prize for punk-pop novelty. --Kevin Maidment

I've been listening to this for the last week after getting hold of a Promo copy of the album.
It's a great debut (although there have been lots of earlier independant releases) from the trio, and evidence that they are already up there with the best in creating infectious three minute symphonies. Kicking off with the power pop/punk first single, "Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt" the album gets off to a ferocious start and is an indication of the quality that is to purvey throughout the record.
Dynamically the band is improving all the time, and the songs are continually interesting; "Can't Lose" showcases this. Starting with a stripped down bass/drum/vocal, then sweeping into a guitar-laden chorus, suddenly the middle 8 drops out, falling into an unexpected vocal harmony, before the trio finally storm back into the chorus refrain.
Anyone who's seen the band live will testify that the guys are consummate musicians (and amusing!). The musianship on the album is most prevalent on the trio of songs kicking off with new single, "The Great Escape". Building up from the catchy guitar intro into the drum-rolling crescendo chorus, it's a sublime slice of everything a great single should be. "Textbook" shows the band in more contemplative mood; complete with haunting guitar lick, anguished backing vocals, and matter of fact delivery of chorus, it's expertly carried off. "Lousy Reputation" completes the trilogy, and is for me the standout track of the album. Leading with Chiming guitar, fastidious bassline, and defiant intelligent vocal the song grows gradually before flourishing into an anthemic choral feast.

All i knew about this band before getting the album was that they were quirky men with weird dress sense. Since getting the album i have learnt that these guys will make it big.
the album is truly supurb. Bit short but amazing all the way through. Like the Kaiser Chief's Employment every track could be a single. Despite their typical indie strumming the songs are actually quite melodic due to the singers different but likeable voice. You can definately sense the NY influence such as the strokes in the music however this is different, its punkier. Easier to dance along to. Cant wait to see them live. Check out tracks "cant lose" and "inaction"

While not divulging in the same enthusiasm as other reviewers, We Are Scientists have made an essentially 'pop' album. Every song contains a catchy riff and their music can appeal to a wide audience. What's more, With Love and Squalor is in my opinion a massive improvement on their self released EPs and the trio have a sense of humour to boot.

When I first heard We Are Scientists on radio 1 I was struck by how cathcy and immediately likeable their music is. When I finally got their album a few weeks ago I found it the same. Although it needs a few listens to really tap into the fine quality of the music it is a very good, solid debut.
When ypu first hear the funky guitar riff of 'Nobody Move' you have an idea of what the album is going to be like: fast, funky, and extremly catchy. My favourite songs are 'Lousy Reputation', 'In Action' and 'Nobody Move Nobody Get Hurt', simply because this the guys at their best.
My only (if a bit picky) complaint is that it's a bit on the short side at only 37 minutes long. Despite this, if you love Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and/or Maximo Park then this is a highly recommended album which I feel was slightly overlooked in the excitement of all the other bands at the moment (Arctic Monkeys for instance).
I sincerly recommend this excellent piece of indie/pop/punk!

We Are Scientists are a New York-based three-piece that released their debut album "With Love and Squalor" in 2005. As their name suggests, they look and talk like nerds. However, We Are Scientists do know how to pen songs that should prove strong commercial hits, as they cash in on the current vogue for post-punk songs that get you up on your feet and rocking.

The album clocks in at a pretty fast 12 tracks in 37 minutes and does not pause for breath at the start until the fourth track "Can't Lose". The record is heavily guitar-laden, with nearly all of the tracks containing hooks that are well worth hearing. Murray is on lead guitar and vocals and does both quite well, while Cain (complete with the dodgey 1980s 'tache and glasses) on bass is capable of producing a strong and distinct sound, without dominating. Although American, they do occasionally sound like one of their peer bands from the UK though, e.g. The Editors or Kaiser Chiefs.

The big themes on the album are the pressing issues of the day - birds and booze. Well, lets face it, they were for most blokes when they were students and this is clearly where this band wants to pitch its tent right now.

"With Love and Squalor" opens with "Nobody Moves, Nobody Gets Hurt", a jeu-de-mot of a title which makes the track sound like something the Fun Loving Criminals would offer up, but is really about pleading with a girlfriend to stay. Its a catchy guitar-driven song, which has the feel though of being a paint-by-numbers approach to how to achieve a commercial hit at present.
