  • This Megaplex track finds We Are Scientists aiming for the dance floor. Frontman Keith Murray said:

    "It occurred to me that a good way of slipping out of unpleasant interactions might simply be to put on a good, danceable tune. Nobody likes to chat while they're dancing, and, anyway, it's hard to deliver an incisive counterpoint over a banging beat.

    I like to think that this song might be an aid to anyone who finds themselves under conversational siege – rather than put up their defences and really get into an argument, they can take their debate partner's hand, lure then onto the dance floor, and sing along, imploring them to simply drop the subject, together."
