We Are The Physics * Your Friend, The Atom (cd 2012)

Indeed, I do not only listen to musical violence, I also have a growing likeness for weird and punky pop music. I discovered this Scotish band a while ago. In 2008 they released their excellent debut cd “Are OK At Music”, however album… it is only half an hour, or as the cover says: “Guaranteed to fit on ONE SIDE of a C60 Tape!”. This also shows the humour of this band. The new album (41 minutes) has a song title that I cannot retype without my software turning the html code into an accent. Also in the music there is plenty room for humour. The music is often fast, guitar oriented popmusic with catchy rhythms and electronics. The vocals are nicely strange and especially the use of ‘choirs’ on the new album is very amusing. The music can be described as somewhat of a mix between nowave weirdness and experimentalism and electropunk. The energy and approach reminds of great bands such as Duchess Says, We Are Wolves and Bang! Bang! Eche!, but each band certainly has a distinctive sound. It is not like I like each and every of these ‘electropunk’ bands, but with two great cds We Are The Physics definately make a wonderfull addition to my discovery so I can play some lighter stuff every now and then.
