We Are Scientists

When: Wed., May 25, 8 p.m. 2016

The new Helter Seltzer (someone had to do it) largely eschews the old tricks of We Are Scientists’ frenetic neo-new-wave post-punk—cymbal-heavy drum pulses, rough guitar riffs, debauchery. Produced with keyboardist Max Hart, who’s toured with Katy Perry, Helter Seltzer sands down those rough edges, washing mid-tempo songs in alternately smooth and fizzy synths and programmed drum beats. There’s almost no danger of being blown away, but it’s almost equally difficult not to find the tunes pleasant. —Patrick Wall
