‘Handshake Agreement’ takes aim at social media, with frontman Keith Murray explaining: “I could get into how, as far as I can tell, social media has reduced public conversation to this sort of dialogue, where everything is half-believed but doubly-passionate, but, let’s be honest nobody wants to hear already-obvious social theory from a guitar player.
“Suffice it to say that ‘Handshake Agreement’ is my song about Twitter, and how whatever servers it’s being run on should be shot out of a cannon into the ocean, as quickly as possible, thanks.”
The track’s accompanying video will drop at 7pm UK time tonight (August 5), with the clip set to premiere here.
“After all these years of releasing music, you’d think I’d have a pretty thick skin, but I still have a hard time checking out comments online,” Murray said of the clip. “When an incisive critic like Beef Harmon£y weighs in though, I’m all ears.”
We Are Scientists will head out on a UK and Ireland tour in November in support of ‘Huffy’.
