L’indie rock n’en finit plus d’étonner ! Alors que l’on pense avoir tout entendu de ce genre, des groupes comme We Are Scientist continuent de donner un nouveau souffle à ce style. Sans doute habillés de blouse blanche une fois en studio, les Californiens ayant élu domicile à Brooklyn n’ont pas laissé de côté leur humour et excentricité habituels. D’ailleurs, ils ont même invité le claviériste de Katy Perry, Max Hart, pour les enregistrements. Les mélodies de ce cinquième album paraissent plus travaillées qu’à l’accoutumé, malgré un côté pop largement renforcé. Recherchant parfois des sonorités des Mancuniens d’Oasis, Helter Seltzer puise dans plusieurs influences pour fournir un contenu détonnant ! © RB/Qobuz

Reduced to the core duo of singer and guitarist Keith Murray and bassist Chris Cain, Brooklyn's We Are Scientists successfully make the next step implicit in the new wave revival of the early 2000s. Think back to the original new wave scene, both in its original U.K. incarnation in the late '70s and the slightly later MTV-fueled flowering of same across the malls and junior high schools of America. Think of a band like, say, the Thompson Twins. The Thompson Twins released a pair of cred-establishing post-punk records before edging into pop with the "In the Name of Love" single and then the semi-pop, semi-experimental transition album Quick Step & Side Kick, which garnered that much more mainstream interest. So let's say We Are Scientists' full-length debut, 2005's With Love and Squalor, was their Quick Step & Side Kick, an album balanced neatly between indie cred and the sort of aboveground success that the Killers or Franz Ferdinand scored. So then what? Well, the Thompson Twins went all in and recorded the ultra-pop, glossy Into the Gap, an album designed for widespread American Top 40 success, and were rewarded with smash singles like "Hold Me Now" and "Doctor, Doctor." Similarly, We Are Scientists recorded Brain Thrust Mastery. Nonsensical album title aside, Brain Thrust Mastery is the new wave revival's conceptual equivalent of an album like Into the Gap. The first single, "After Hours," is a pure pop delight, the most immediately catchy song We Are Scientists have yet created and a genuine potential hit. "Impatience" would a solid choice for the not as memorable second single, and the goofy, deliberately corny dance-pop of "Lethal Enforcer" sounds tailor-made for the soundtrack of 2008's equivalent of a John Hughes teen comedy. There are some solid album tracks that recall the more daring aspects of the debut, particularly the abstract, dark-hued cool of the opener, "Ghouls," and the catchy and energetic "Tonight." But the rest of Brain Thrust Mastery consists of pleasantly tuneful pop songs that barely register with the listener even after several repetitions. It's not a bad record, and its best songs are certainly worthy of Thompson Twins-level success. It's just that in the long run, this gambit did that band no favors (quick, name one Thompson Twins song post 1984), and barring another conceptual overhaul the next time out, We Are Scientists might find themselves in the same boat. © Stewart Mason /TiVo

Following on from Helter Seltzer (2016), it’s the sixth studio album from We Are Scientists and the duo are still having as much fun as ever before. Megaplex is a flamboyant indie pop record that merges 80’s synths with distorted guitar chords, drawing listeners to compare them to sounds we associate with groups like the Naked & Famous. The vocal lines are at times banal, but still hold weight as they ring over the accompaniment, with the New Yorkers tacking us on a sonic adventure over the 31 minutes of music. The LP boasts a strong opening with One In One Out, with a catchy synth lead and a chorus that will be engraved in your brain after a single listen. The 9 other tracks move from 80’s influenced tunes, like on Heart Is A Weapon, to classic indie rock sounds with Now or Never. It’s without doubt a playful record that is bright, snappy, and will get you up off your feet. It’s a credit to the duo that they are six albums in and are still having as much fun as their early years (Safety, Fun & Learning, 2002). An infectious record, here’s hoping they keep the good times coming! © Aidan Nickerson/ Qobuz

Picking up where 2010's Barbara left off, We Are Scientists' fifth studio album, 2014's TV en Français, is a refreshing blast of power that finds the band further exploring their own brand of melodic guitar-based songcraft. If Barbara saw the duo of Keith Murray and Chris Cain moving ever so slightly away from their previous frenetic take on '80s post-punk and toward a more harmony-driven style, then TV en Français is an even more classicist pop record. Perhaps it was the departure of drummer Michael Tapper in 2007, or a maturing desire to explore different aspects of songwriting, but We Are Scientists have delved deeply on TV en Français into the kind of pure, exuberant songwriting that brings to mind such stalwarts of the genre as Teenage Fanclub, Sloan, and Fountains of Wayne. Tracks like the yearning "Don't Blow It" and the blown-out "Sprinkles" showcase the group's knack for bright, harmony-laden melodies and big, anthemic choruses that you catch yourself humming after a single listen. Elsewhere, cuts like "Overreacting" and the driving, fuzz-laden "Slow Down" bring to mind the shoegaze and noise-pop sounds of bands like Ride and Slowdive. However, nothing expresses how much the band has grown as songwriters as the shimmering, uber-romantic "Make It Easy." Charming from the get-go, the tune tugs at you with its cleverly joyous and celebratory lyrics about finding the love of your life while simultaneously blowing the doors off musically, combining all of the band's influences into one immediately catchy, hook-laden song. Just as the lyrics say, "You make it easy, and it should be easy," We Are Scientists make writing infectious, utterly listenable pop songs, over and over again, seem easy. © Matt Collar /TiVo
