They are Scientists. But they are not Wolves. At least that was until the video for “Impatience,” the second single from Brooklyn’s We Are Scientists’ second major label album, Brain Thrust Mastery, which finds bassist Chris Cain turning into a werewolf. Whether that’s what the band is so impatient about (turning into a hairy creature) is debatable, but the song is a collision of multiple hooks (including the propulsive guitar), that’s one of the few highlights of the hot-and-cold Mastery.
Brain Thrust Mastery is out now via Virgin. [Stereogum]
