Check Out Scissor Sisters’ New Video and Single, “Only The Horses”
It’s been too long since we’ve heard new material from Scissor Sisters, so I was excited to see this in my inbox. Jake Shears has taken a break from tweeting naked pictures to make a music video for his band’s single, “Only The Horses.” Co-produced by Calvin Harris (he did that Rihanna song you can’t escape), this is the first taste of their upcoming album Magic Hour, which drops May 28.
The single is good, but the music video leaves me wanting more. It’s like they took a gay approach to Hitchcock’s formula of creating suspense at a snail’s pace before an explosive, rainbow climax. The theory is good, but the practice leaves something to be desired.
While I’m not feeling the video, I’m pretty into the song. I don’t mind that it’s following the current trends of Top 40 pop, because it’s a gay-friendly song that’s actually written and performed by gay people. It’s not some straight lady marketing to a gay audience (no judgement), it’s actually one of our own making you bounce your booty for once.
Are you excited for the new Scissor Sisters LP? How do you feel about their equestrian approach to pop?
