Everybody knows how much we love the Scissor Sisters. After 6 years of rocking to their infectious disco grooves, you would think I’d be more skeptical of the new direction they seem to be going in. “Only the Horses” is the lead single off their upcoming album, Magic Hour, and it’s a synth-heavy house jam, the first time I’ve ever imagined Scissor Sisters playing at a rave. It was produced by Calvin Harris and Alex Ridha (of Boys Noize).
As for the video, I’m not sure what the hell is going on. There’s horses (of course), and paint, and a pyramid, and more paint. And the folks on the YouTube comment section let the Sarah Jessica Parker jokes fly. You know, sometimes I can appreciate a good trolling.
