  • Craig Mercer and Colin Crowell are confident they’ll leave you happy.

Halifax's tech-house duo Scientists of Sound is releasing its first full-length album, Electric Scissors. "The album has been a long time in the making," says Craig Mercer. He describes it as early Daft Punk meets Justice with a little bit of Stanley Kubrick thrown in. The title was inspired by a David Croft album. "There was a bit about electric scissors and how they're a stupid invention," he says. "The album has a lot of themes about technology and where we're headed as a society." Mercer and fellow band member Colin Crowell produced the album themselves. Mercer says self-producing was not only convenient but helpful to the recording process because they could bring their laptops anywhere and lay down a beat. He says Electric Scissors will surprise listeners---the duo's only played three songs live and some are borderline hip-hop, it will also have more vocals than fans are used to. "It's vastly different," he says. "I'm confident fans will be happy with it."

Friday June 21, 10pm, The Seahorse, 1665 Argyle Street, $12/$15
