Track Review: We Are Scientists – Contact High

Despite relinquishing their glory days’ crown some fifteen years ago, We Are Scientists can still assemble a tune. However, where their 2005 showstoppers consisted electric urgency, newer releases fall short in eliciting and reproducing that same vitalness.

New single, Contact High, emits the essence of We Are Scientists, encapsulating the sincerity and maturity of their early efforts, whilst remaining relevant in its final product – it’s just not the same! They are chasing something they will never replicate – a sound that was significant at a specific time.

Where Contact High triumphs is in its chorus. We Are Scientists are master craftsmen in the art of chorus construction, and Contact High is a fine example of the band in full flight. The Chorus steadily takes off before soaring high above the clouds.

Contact High is a great track from an accomplished act, and fans of the band will welcome this latest release. Just don’t expect anything new and exciting.
