US indie hero’s We Are Scientists are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at Limelight 2 on 30th November 2021. The indie mainstays return with their first new LP ‘Huffy’ in three years on October 08th, and the physical editions will boast something a lil extra: sicker sheets, a special design, and more.
The band's Chris Cain comments: “Usually people bring a vinyl record home, rip it to their iPods, and throw it straight into the fire.
Well, not with Huffy. We’re giving our listeners a reason to keep this one around, and even to consider passing it down to future generations if they’re super-happy with where they put all the stickers.”
Out on October 9th, the album is trailed by new single 'Contact High', a fizzing piece of indie rock that matches the angular thrills of their debut to some fresh production elements.
"Love songs can easily be goofy and embarrassing, and so I sometimes have a hard time writing songs that are unambiguously romantic", says Keith Murray. "'Contact High' really nails that heady rush of full-throttle infatuation for me, though, because it evokes my trifecta of mood-altering stimuli — dizzying romantic interaction, rousing music, and second-hand contact with psychoactive chemicals (in descending order of personal preference)."
He adds: "It’s just nice to have a song that’s unapologetically sappy, but couched in distorted guitar and metaphors of coincidental intoxication."
