While Franz Ferdinand toil over their third album, there's a gap in the market for danceable art-pop from Scotland, and fellow Glaswegian quartet We Are the Physics have dashed into it.

The majority of tracks on their debut album sound like the Dead Kennedys' "California Uber Alles" and Soft Cell's "Memorabilia" blended in a cement mixer: an unholy chaos of screeches and bleeps, clangs and shouts. There's a suspicion that their freneticism is a deliberate ploy to mask a lack of content, but when you do catch the odd lyric, there's definitely someone at home.
