What's up We Are Scientists! Welcome back. We've missed you. We've missed your witty repartee. And the effortless melodicism in your songs. Keith! We've missed you silverfox hair swoop. So silky, so temptingly touchable. Above is the video for "Dumb Luck" which was initially released on their recent EP, Business Casual. It's also going to take pride of place on their forthcoming fourth record, TV en Français, (out on March 4).
"Dumb Luck" bears all the hallmarks of their awesome: the gnarly, nimble riffs, the zingy pace, the way Chris and Keith's vocals layer up and sound just the right amount of world weary, while simultaneously making you want to jump around like an idiot.
Visually this video is sick. It's the goriest, grossest three minutes the pair have ever had a hand in. It also contains some vital life lessons like exercising is dangerous, juicing is for losers, DIY is not for dummies, and don't smoke on the fire escape, you dirty hipster.
