We Are The Physics – You Can Do Athletics, BTW

More fun than both physics and athletics

Allaying the complex equations of math rock with the acute geometry of new wave is Glasgow four-piece We Are The Physics.

With a name like that you should expect a scientific approach to music and the competing riffs, measured beats and cut up vocals on their debut single represent a calculated sound. Yet the song’s precise base is pummelled like a nerd on his first day at a new school, by their frantic, jerking rhythms, flailing guitars and a driving sense of mania when it comes to track and field. More fun than both physics and athletics.
