Beach Break interview: We are Scientists
Share This Article:
Whilst at Beach Break we caught up with two thirds American band We Are Scientists who are now one third British with the inclusion of ex-Razorlight member Andy Burrows. We had a little sing-song and talked about seagulls.... TNS: You guys haven’t played here before. Are you expecting any differences because the majority, if not all of the attendants, are students? Chris Kane: We’re expecting a more lively crowd. Keith: I’m expecting a more educated crowd. Hopefully they’re more enlightened but also free from the bourgeoisie that prevent people from having sex in a field whilst surrounded by other people. Is this the youngest audience you’ve played to at a festival? Keith: Many in our audiences have been below student age. What was your first festival experience? Keith: I think Reading and Leeds was the first time in 2006. Chris: Definitely went to some local festivals in South Florida when I was growing up. I saw Mr Big play and it was a full day nightmare. There was an R n B act. Keith: Wasn’t Sister Hazel there? Chris: No because this was pre Sister Hazel although I saw them as they were from Gainsville which is where I went to University. Keith: I love your story of seeing them at an apartment building pool. Chris: I’m not sure they would have made it big here. They had a massive hit in the US in 95 I think.
