With their highly-anticipated new album landing early next year, We Are Scientists have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Less From You' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Operator Error' in previewing their eighth LP 'Lobes', which is out on the 20th January via 100% Records.
Speaking about the new offering, singer Keith Murray said, "There was definitely a period in my life when I thought being jaded was cool — that familiar, idiotic teenage phase that also accepted clove cigarettes and the music of Marilyn Manson. I’ve had my pessimism proven wrong so many times in my life, though, about so many things - friendship, love, an unexpectedly great Mai Tai in the basement of a British hotel - that it’s been impossible to really maintain that full-throttle cynical outlook into adulthood. Sure, whittling down my pessimism has meant that I don’t get to enjoy the peculiar pleasure of having my own rotten expectations subverted quite as often, but 'Less From You' celebrates the greater delight of having my already-high hopes exceeded."
While bassist Chris Cain adds, “I really wanted the bass part of this song to be performed on our Moog Voyager — a nice thick synth bass felt like a great way to add some sleaze to the party. In the end, a blend of Moog and bass guitar sounded best, which I’m worried means I’ll have to actually play this bass part at live shows instead of taking a dance break.”
