We Are Scientists return with new single 'I Cut My Own Hair'

After delivering their much-loved album 'Megaplex' back in 2018, We Are Scientists have now returned to share a very timely new single.

The new track 'I Cut My Own Hair' will soundtrack CALM’s #BigBuzzOff campaign, raising money for Mental Health Awareness Week, and comes accompanied by a very fun, quarantine-inspired video.

Speaking about their new offering, frontman Keith Murray said, “I’ve been cutting my own hair for years now, so one silver lining of this cloudy life in quarantine is that this behaviour, which others used to consider a sign of some flaw in my character, has now become an enviable skill. When I wrote the song last year, I was self-identifying as an outsider. Now, I guess, it’s become more an anthem of unification; everybody is cutting their own hair, like it or not. In a way, it’s pretty nice that the rest of the world — the formerly-professionally-hairdressed majority — has gotten a little closer to knowing the essential, questionably-coiffed Keith Murray.”

While bassist Chris Cain adds, “I knew about Keith’s home haircuts and I sort of envied him and was sort of disgusted by him at the same time. What a risk to take, I thought. What a cavalier way to treat this wonderful gift life gave you, like driving around with your dog in the flatbed of your pickup truck instead of in the cab. But then the internet people made up this insane challenge — cutting your own hair in just over two minutes while listening to our song… and millions of people did it! Who are these daredevils? But they boxed me in. And I admit: it felt like really living.”
