We Are Scientists have gotten active for the first since 2018’s Megaplex album with the lockdown-themed track I Cut My Own Hair.
“I’ve been cutting my own hair for years now, so one silver lining of this cloudy life in quarantine is that this behavior, which others used to consider a sign of some flaw in my character, has now become an enviable skill,” Keith Murray says.
“When I wrote the song last year, I was self-identifying as an outsider. Now, I guess, it’s become more an anthem of unification; everybody is cutting their own hair, like it or not. In a way, it’s pretty nice that the rest of the world — the formerly-professionally-hairdressed majority — has gotten a little closer to knowing the essential, questionably-coiffed Keith Murray.”
The song is also soundtracking CALM’s #BigBuzzOff campaign, which is aiming to raise money during Mental Health Awareness Week.
