Opener One In One Out is a tale of love at first sight and a reminder of why we fell in love with We Are Scientists in the first place. No longer bogged down and laboured, it’s fresh and vibrant and the best thing the band has done since 2010’s Barbara.

Happily, it sets the tone for a record that has all the Keith and Chris trademarks; like the abundance of synth on Heart Is A Weapon and the big grunge rock riffs of Your Light Has Changed. What’s different is, it sounds like the always witty duo are having fun in the studio again. Even mournful ballad KIT is followed by the triumphantly epic No Wait At Five Leaves. A love rekindled.
