We Are Scientists return with new single 'Operator Error'

Following on from the release of their highly-praised studio album 'Huffy' last year, We Are Scientists have returned once again to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Operator Error' marks their first piece of new material so far this year, and is available to stream now via 100% Records.

Speaking about the new offering, bassist Chris Cain said, "It starts with what sounds like a countdown timer for some kind of destructive alien device, but ends up being a countdown timer for one of the punchiest little pop songs on Earth. So the usual first-listen reaction is joy mixed with quite a bit of relief."

While vocalist/guitarist Keith Murray adds, "I have a tendency to deliver hot takes and to get extraordinarily overheated about utterly inconsequential things.

"I got into a multi-hour argument over whether Top Gun: Maverick is a halfway decent movie. Maybe it’s weird, then, that I also tend to be pretty sanguine over big issues. It’s fairly hard to drag me into a heated fight, or to get me to say something that I’ll later come to regret. On important matters, I like to keep quiet, to listen to everyone else’s take, and to silently build my own bullet-proof argument, which nobody else will ever hear. I operate in dual modes – one where I’m apt to deliver my dumb opinion with little provocation, and one in which it’s almost impossible to get me to say what I’m really thinking. It’s probably a pretty frustrating character trait for the people who are trying to engage me in consequential conversation, and I apologize to my friends and my enemies, alike."
