Scientists of Sound's signature anthemic electro sound unites raging guitar hooks with heavy club grooves and epic gang vocal melodies. Combining hard hitting beats and the frantic energy of a rock band with something to prove at every show, an SOS set leaves the audience feeling like they just climbed a fucking mountain.
Scientists of Sound's new album The Beginning (of the Beginning of the End) comes out on Nov 15th.
If you are thinking that prog rock and electro have no business being in the same sentence, you are not alone—and they probably don’t. Stop reading because this music is not for you. But if you are intrigued at the notion then you might have had a YES shirt at some point in your life. You likely can sing a bunch of guitar solos, and you actually didn’t hate it when some dipshit put electronic beats under your favorite Pink Floyd tunes. On some level, you are probably a music nerd.
Scientists of Sound have wasted countless hours in the studio obsessively compulsively attempting to improve every sound, every beat, and every note on their new album The Beginning (of the beginning of the end). It was beginning to look like there would never be an end to the making of this record, but if the world up and ended without it having been released, the irony would be just too much.
JUST TOO MUCH is a lot of what is happening on this record. It’s probably too much for you. But is it ever enough, really?
If you answered yes, this isn’t for you. Stay safe out there.
But if this sounds at all appealing in any way, this might be just what you’ve been looking for.
“a huge dose of testosterone that invites massive headbanging.” - Grayowl point
"There hasn’t been a fusion of rock guitar and electronics this tight and deliciously riffy since Daft Punk” - Scene in the Dark - Van, BC
“The energy spiked when Scientists of Sound took the stage dressed in reflective material as flashy as the disco ball above them, ripping through an instrumental rocker to the delight of the dance floor. The crowd was treated to a rare face to face performance from the duo, who are notorious for performing in bizarre animal masks. The first half of their set was heavy on the anthemic ballads, channeling the vibe-y guitars of Ratatat with a dance core. The second half veered toward the dubbed soul and robot vocals of early Daft Punk. The futuristic nostalgia clearly resonated with the bodies on the dance floor." - Exclaim Magazine

BEATS AND LOVE,
Thanks Toronto! HFX show on Feb 6th
Big ups to all you Toronto folk who came out and ripped the shit out of the horseshoe last weekend. I know it had been a while since we were around, but that won't happen again! We are back on the attack with a new album scheduled to be released this summer, and you will be seeing us a lot more often!
FEB 6th we hit up the Seahorse Tavern in Halifax for the first time since they moved locations a while back. We are excited to share the stage with one of the most exciting local acts we've heard in a while - WALRUS - they play psychedelic, tripped out music that kinda makes you feel like wearing tie-dye - but you would never do that - or would you?
Hope to see you next week at the show Halifax and stay tuned for some more announcements about the new album, new videos, and just a whole bunch of new shit in general!
beats and love,
2015 - Happy New Year!

New lineup / New tracks!
For those of you who checked out the epic SOS shows over x-mas break, you may have noticed that instead of a fucked up bunny on stage you saw a mad zebra - that is because producer Colin Crowell, formerly of Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees, has joined the madness! Aaron had moved to Lethbridge earlier in the year and we were finding playing gigs logistically challenging, so we have decided to make this move... We wish Aaron the best in future endeavors, and fear not, he will stil be a huge part of the SOS album and possibly future SOS endeavors.
The first 3 shows with Colin were off the hook - and anybody who had any questions about the bands' future left having them answered by the musical boot in the face that hit them at these shows. We are currently in production of a new live show, complete with new video, new lights, and a revamped set list. Watch for tour date announcements in the coming weeks - you don't want to miss the next chapter!
