EXCLUSIVE: We Are Scientists on blackmail, religion and bisecting frogs

Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?
Under no circumstances

How did you get started?
We started this thing the way we begin almost any venture that we undertake – we were forced into it by a third party, either with threat of physical harm or emotional ruin. In this situation, it was a case of good old-fashioned blackmail. These guys, these Russian guys, they knew some things that we’d rather keep quiet. So: We Are Scientists.

How are things going for you at the moment?
For the band; incredibly, things are going incredibly. You wouldn’t believe how well they’re going – it’s quite literally not credible. I’m not even going to go ahead and compromise my credibility by giving you the specifics of our current fortune. Just trust me: it’s literally incredible.

How was Frog?
He was good, although he had just gotten over a cold and looked rather ashen.

Have you ever dissected a frog?
I have bisected a frog. (!)

How do you come up with your songs?
You think I’m going to tell you my trade secrets? That’s the last thing I need, you and everyone who reads your magazine, running around, writing my very songs.

Are you religious?
Well, I am revered.

What is hell?
Hell is other people, and a dearth of ice.

How much did you enjoy this interview?
Almost too much!

    the we are scientists album is stunning! as much as i want to be cynical and suspicious of their inventive videos and slick major-label backed marketing, it’s easily the best new-wave pop record of the year in my humble opinion 🙂
