As we eagerly await the release of their highly-anticipated new album 'Lobes', which is out on the 20th January via 100% Records, We Are Scientists have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Lucky Just To Be Here' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Operator Error' and 'Less From You' in previewing their new LP.
Speaking about the new offering, they said, "When people think about We Are Scientists — and they often do — they probably think about danceable beats, anthemic sing-along choruses, and the greatest, most energetic live shows they‘ve had the good fortune to attend. What they’re perhaps less likely to think of are aching, bittersweet ruminations on time’s relentless chisel-work or the pang of instant nostalgia that comes as our lives our hewn, with each passing moment. I mean, they probably don’t think of those things, with us, right? Well, 'Lucky Just To Be Here' may just change that for a lot of listeners. The song is a rare moment of quiet for us, although, yes, it does still eventually explode with the sort of exhilarating bombast upon which we’ve built our reputation, so fans who fear the sort of existential change that this song confronts can rest assured that some things — some essential things, like We Are Scientists’ unrestrained vitality — remain constant."
