They Blinded Me With Science

9 Mar

We are Scientists, from Brooklyn New York, dabble in many different genres, but most with a power pop influence.
On their latest album it is a heartfelt ballad “Courage” that steals the show.

And while it is polished and smooth, here I present to you the demo version of the track in all its rawness. Still at its core, with just a guitar and lead singer Keith Murray, one can hear the similarities between “Courage” and retro power pop kings Big Star’s “Try again.”

Simple in melody and instrumentation and focusing on voice allows one to be reminded that fancy production is not needed to create a retro sounding song. The honesty and fragility in Murray’s performance shines through while still providing an alternative/rock/ throwback power pop background
