American rock band We Are Scientists debuted in the early aughts with the angular post-punk edge of With Love and Squalor, later evolving to incorporate polished synths and expanded atmospherics on efforts like 2016’s Helter Seltzer, 2018’s Megaplex, and 2021’s Huffy.
Although modestly popular in America, they were a hit in the U.K., where the group’s sound — part post-punk revival and part indie rock with a touch of ’80s synth pop — drew parallels to contemporaries like Editors, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, and The Killers.
