Brooklyn power pop duo, We Are Scientists, takes live show to a virtual level in new video “One In One Out” where, as you would’ve guessed, we see them perform in the virtual world. It’s a chromatic and reality-bending video that may also serve as a glimpse into the future of live shows. The chest-swelling beats and explosive synths give an immediate upsurge of energy, making “One In One Out” a natural party starter:

Directed by Jed Mitchell, “One In One Out” is the opener for the band’s upcoming album. “When Jed explained the VR aspect to us,” shared guitarist/singer Keith Murray. “We thought it was going to be our chance to step outside of our corporeal bondage, to enter a world where natural laws have no place, where our abilities would be unchecked by physics or even by morality, where we could live like gods and wantonly slake our every unholy thirst. Turns out, he just wanted us to perform our song, which was fun, too.”

T heir new record, Megaplex, will be out on April 27th and was produced by Max Hart, who also produced Katy Perry in the past. Comprised of Keith and Chris Cain (bass), We Are Scientists formed back in 2000 and have already released five albums (Megaplex will be their sixth).Known for their hits such as “After Hours” and “Rules Don’t Stop,” We Are Scientists are returning full force with a more upbeat album this year.
