Beloved indie heroes We Are Scientists return with news of their first album in 3 years.

The intoxicating, high-octane hit is set to soundtrack a surge of pent-up revelry and romance throughout the summer of 2021, as it ushers in a bold new chapter for the band. Lifted from the new album Huffy – the band have revealed the secret ingredients of the lead single’s winning formula… “Love songs can easily be goofy and embarrassing, and so I sometimes have a hard time writing songs that are unambiguously romantic”, states singer and guitarist Keith Murray, before adding that, “Contact High really nails that heady rush of full-throttle infatuation for me, though, because it evokes my trifecta of mood-altering stimuli — dizzying romantic interaction, rousing music, and second-hand contact with psychoactive chemicals (in descending order of personal preference).”

Drawing as much from the angular guitar-driven sounds of their debut as it does from the finest in modern rock today, ‘Contact High’ is raising the bar for the decade ahead. Celebrating the song’s potent delivery and unashamed lyrical sentiment, Murray concludes… “it’s just nice to have a song that’s unapologetically sappy, but couched in distorted guitar and metaphors of coincidental intoxication.”

Huffy’s fresh music is accompanied by an oh-so-fresh presentation: multi-panelled vinyl and CD packaging offer a blank wall on which listeners can unfold their own unreasonable vision for the Huffy universe. Each includes sticker sheets with over 20 full colour graffiti designed by Keith, Chris, and friends, deployable according to the user’s whim. Tilting reality even further into the hallucinatory gyre, this vinyl comes in a choice of different colours. (The cassette will be manufactured in yellow, and has exclusive content on Side B, giving hard plastic-enthusiasts something to crow about.)

Format – Cassette, CD & Limited Edition Cherry Laser Red Coloured Vinyl LP (All Each of the physical formats will come with a nearly-blank cover and a pack of stickers for fans to design their own album cover.)
