New York glam-queens Scissor Sisters will return to Australia this September on the back of their new album Magic Hour. Last out here for Summadayze and Pyramid Rock at the end of last/beginning of this year, we’ll see them back again to play three shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
For their new album, the band have worked with a diverse list of new collaborators, such as Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams, Diplo, Alex Rihda [BoysNoize] and Azealia Banks. The album was recorded over the past year in New York and London. Of Magic Hour, vocalist Jake Shears says “It’s a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop. It style-hops all over the place unabashedly.”
