We Are Scientists are back with a new record called Barbara. The album is the band’s 4th, was recorded in New York, London, and Los Angeles, produced by Ariel Rechtshaid, and features drumming from former Razorlight drummer Andy Burrows, who is now an official member of the band. A pretty solid addition to the band, I gotta say!
The first single from the album is called “Rules Don’t Stop”. Zane Lowe played the song on BBC, and a devoted We Are Scientist fan smartly ripped the song. It is a very short song, but they pack in plenty of hooks and fiery instrumentation into it. The quality isn’t CD quality, but it is certainly listenable. The song is hits the mark and is instantly gratifying. It is filled with sharp guitars, a funky bassline, and Keith Murray’s usual sexy vocals that is sure to get the girls going. Murray makes it clear through the catchy chorus that rules don’t apply to him. It’s a pretty good single, and a good sign for the rest of Barbara. I’ve been listening to it pretty much all morning, and I wouldn’t mind upping the playcount a bit more!
Renee, the owner of the We Are Scientists fan blog emailed me, and the original rip apparently came from her, so a thank you to her for making the effort and time to rip the mp3 Renee!
