The infectious tunes and energetic live performances of the Brooklyn-based band We Are Scientists have launched them into the UK music mainstream. However, it’s Chris Cain and Keith Murray’s friendship, creativity, and sense of humor that have given them their rabid cult following. From onstage banter to inventive music videos to an advice column on the band’s website, it’s refreshing to discover talented people who can also laugh at themselves in the often ego-driven world of rock and roll. In this episode of Rehearsal Space, Keith and Chris discuss the advantages of being signed to a major label, their unique method of achieving popularity in the UK, why it’s important to be hands-on when recording your music, and finally how one member’s hobby either created or nearly destroyed the band, depending upon whom you ask.
