We Are Scientists

create rock music of the thoughtful, sometimes epic, often loud, vaguely danceable, implicitly humanist variety. At least, that's what Keith Murray, Chris Cain and Andy Burrows think what they're doing. Overall, the three Brooklynites are a band that masters that mysterious reaction that turns bedsit angst into dancefloor gold. With «Steve Wants His Money» they even have their own mini-series on MTV.
