New song: We Are Scientists - "After Hours"

Hey, did you kids catch We Are Scientist's new single, "After Hours," on BBC 1 with Steve Lamacq and Colin Murray last night?

Yeah, I didn't, either, 'cause I was busy running about midtown.

Luckily enough, someone was kind enough to rip and post it for all us busy Yanks.

We Are Scientists - "After Hours" (radio rip)

(via JPs blog, thanks)

So many lovely layers, and so peppy!

We Are Scientists' second major label record, Brain Thrust Mastery, drops 3 March on Virgin. No word on when "After Hours" will be released or upcoming tour dates...yet.

(Also, JP reminded me that Franz Ferdinand are due to drop a new record in 2008, as are OK Go. That's three out of my four favourite acts, kids. Plus new Secret Dakota Ring and The Lashes. Exciting? Very.)

ETA: Jo Whiley will apparently also be playing "After Hours" on her show on Radio 1, from 10 to 11 am (that's, um, 5 to 6 am EST) tomorrow. If you desperately want to hear it on the radio. Or live in the UK.


  1. thanks for the download link!
    i LOVE we are scientists and their new song is amazing. Nuff said.

  2. Jo Whiley is very much a woman

    But great post, great song anyway...

  3. See, this is why I question why I write a blog because I very clearly don't know anything.

    Thanks for the heads up. :)
