The track is lifted from their upcoming new album ‘Lobes’.

Ahead of the release of their eighth studio album ‘Lobes’ on 20th January via 100% Records, We Are Scientists are releasing their new single ‘Less From You’.

“There was definitely a period in my life when I thought being jaded was cool — that familiar, idiotic teenage phase that also accepted clove cigarettes and the music of Marilyn Manson,” Keith Murray explains. “I’ve had my pessimism proven wrong so many times in my life, though, about so many things - friendship, love, an unexpectedly great Mai Tai in the basement of a British hotel - that it’s been impossible to really maintain that full-throttle cynical outlook into adulthood. Sure, whittling down my pessimism has meant that I don’t get to enjoy the peculiar pleasure of having my own rotten expectations subverted quite as often, but ‘Less From You’ celebrates the greater delight of having my already-high hopes exceeded.”

“I really wanted the bass part of this song to be performed on our Moog Voyager — a nice thick synth bass felt like a great way to add some sleaze to the party,” Chris Cain adds. “In the end, a blend of Moog and bass guitar sounded best, which I’m worried means I’ll have to actually play this bass part at live shows instead of taking a dance break.”
