We Are Scientists are premiering the video for their new single tomorrow.
“Look, I’m generally reluctant to get into song meanings and lyrical analysis, under the best of circumstances,” Keith Murray of We Are Scientists has said. “With a song like Fault Lines, I’m even less inclined to dive into that sort of thing than usual.”
Murray has pumped up the volume somewhat on this new single, which arrives after the crystal clear lockdown themes of I Cut My Own Hair.
“If someone wants to read about (or, hell, see direct evidence of) partisan divides, subjective realities, intractable convictions, and perpetually-recalibrated contextual frameworks, they can just check their social feeds at any given moment,” he continued.
“At least Fault Lines pairs those ideas with sick guitar riffs, extravagant falsetto vocals, and a bonkers, flange-soaked drum fill. That’s why music is better than social media.”
