Formed in 2000 during the last indie-rock boom, We Are Scientists captured the indie-rock sound and, 14 years later, have not let it down. While the release in March of their fifth album, TV en Français, could have been the perfect opportunity to reinvent themselves, the trio stuck to their guns. Though by no means anything new, the album is consistent, infectious and just plain fun. Alongside older songs geared toward getting you on the dance floor, the new collection of melodic and guitar-heavy tracks makes for the perfect setup for a live experience. Add WAS's cheeky stage presence and great sense of humor, and you've got the recipe for a night to remember. U.K. garage-pop trio PAWS open.
