I still vaguely remember the first time I saw New Yorks, We Are Scientists. It was a year after they'd released ‘With Love and Squalor’.
I was at Leeds Festival and bounced around one of the tents for what felt like 20 seconds, absolutely drenched in sweat (I think it was sweat) and it being everything I wanted them to be.
Ten years later, I'm sat having a cocktail and a laugh with Keith and Chris from the band in a bar called the 'Evil Eye Lounge', before our live session on the radio to promote their 5th album 'Helter Seltzer'.
We talked about the notion of 'Breaking England', if they ever feel like not playing fan favourites like 'Nobody Move....' and 'After Hours'. Also if they feel time and experience has changed the way they approach songwriting.
But firstly, they kicked off with an acoustic version of 'Classic Love' from their new record....ENJOY.
