We Are Scientists

We Are Scientists are vocalist-guitarist Keith Murray, bassist Chris Cain and drummer Michael Tapper. They formed in Berkeley, CA, shortly before moving to New York in the summer of 2001, taking their name from a conversation with a man at the U-Haul company where they hired a truck. After some inappropriate venue choices for their unique songs, they hit their stride with spontaneous performances. “We’re more into having an engaging, energetic live show than delivering something that’s simply the album played live. When things go ‘wrong’- when equipment fails or the drums fall over or I slice my hand open- we love it,” says Keith. [+]
