We Are Scientists – “Sprinkles” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Veteran pop-rockers We Are Scientists have a new album out called TV En Français. In keeping with that title, they’ve made a video for single “Sprinkles” that features the band traipsing around Europe playing rock shows and having the time of their lives. Incidentally, I played pool with these guys and Oxford Collapse backstage at Stubb’s once during SXSW and can confirm that they’re actually chill bros as depicted. The song is multi-tiered and richly harmonic, and its groove is as freewheeling and fun as director James Perou’s video. Watch below.

TV En Français is out now on Dine Alone. Buy it here, and check out We Are Scientists’ upcoming tour dates:
