[Watch] Scissor Sisters - "Baby Come Home" (Official Video)

After delivering fantastic videos with "Shady Love" and "Only The Horses," Scissor Sisters are continuing the streak with their new visuals for "Baby Come Home." It helps that the song is one of the standouts from their recently released fourth studio LP Magic Hour, but the video is equally as awesome. Similar to Justice's epic animated video for "D.A.N.C.E." from a few years ago, Scissor Sisters give us a continually moving tapestry of colourful imagery and animation. It's definitely worth the watch, so check it out above.

Magic Hour is out now via Polydor, and head here to watch the Josh Homme infomercial promoting the album.

[Watch] Scissor Sisters - "Only The Horses" (Official Video)

Scissor Sisters somehow manage to create the most catchy songs, and their track "Only The Horses" is no different. The New York outfit recently let loose the visuals to that very song, which makes excellent use of slow motion. Check it out above. "Only The Horses," along with the previously released song "Shady Love," are set to be included on the group's forthcoming fourth studio LP Magic Hour, which is set for release on May 28th via Polydor.

[Listen] Ladyhawke - "Sunday Drive (Scissor Sisters Remix)"

As if I wasn't super into this song already, this remix provided by Scissor Sisters for Ladyhawke's latest single, "Sunday Drive" takes an already poptastic song, injects it full of dry ice and sends it twirling carelessly out on a disco ball-lit dance floor in a chilly foggy haze. The official "Sunday Drive" single package, complete with remixes such as this one along with ones from Willy Moon, Villa, Gigamesh, and The Slips will be available on May 27nd in the UK. Her sophomore album Anxiety drops on June 4th

[Watch] Scissor Sisters - "Shady Love" Feat. Azealia Banks (Official Video)

 

Jake Shears and Co are readying the follow up to their 2010 album Night Work, and whilst that might be untitled, Scissor Sisters have returned with a brand new track titled "Shady Love". The track features some club like beats as well as some rapping from Shears but after a few listens I can't get it out of my head?! I don't know if that's a good thing or not just yet but they're back. It also features the lady of the moment (no, not Lana), Azealia Banks. Peep the newly released video at the top which is kind of cute featuring some school kids acting out the track. The members of the audience seem less than underwhelmed though, but props to the overly happy Grandma on piano, she's loving the "Shady Love".
