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 Français is slightly more serious as far as its catalog go, it's still We Are Scientists through and through.
