Concert preview: We Are Scientists pack melody into post-punk mindset

From the April 24, 2014 edition

We Are Scientists surfaced when synth wasn't completely necessary to make your pop 'n' rock band work out.

It's straight, hook-ridden pop-rock with a post-punk mindset; full of jumpy staccato but packed with melody to make up for any potential abruptness.

Though TV en Fran├žais is slightly more serious as far as its catalog go, it's still We Are Scientists through and through.
