About Us


Heroes of Popular Science is the bedroom music project of John Chambers and Nick Worrall.  Writing and producing everything themselves, this London based synth-pop duo have recently released their debut EP Catastrophe.  The EP is a set of five songs that owe as much to the slick pop stylings of Scritti Politti and Prefab Sprout as they do to indie-pop contemporaries like St Vincent or Dutch Uncles. With lyrics peppered with references to Carl Sagan, the Voyager 1 spacecraft and electromagnetism, Heroes of Popular Science make catchy songs about love and death, paranoia and perspective. Imagine writing a love letter to Richard Feynman. That you can dance to.
