#LOVE Scissor Sisters: "Only The Horses"

I've already declared my L.O.V.E on Twitter for the new song and video from the Scissor Sisters - "Only The Horses" - so now I'm declaring it on here too!

The song is one of those feel-good, happy-vibe type tunes (which the band always do sooooo well) and it was produced by Calvin Harris, the man who makes us all body-pop.

But it's the video which really caught my eye, featuring four beautiful white stallions charging through the desert, the wind surging through their wild manes, as they pull ropes attached to an illuminati-style pyramid,
 which unbeknown to the viewer, is holding Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Babydaddy and Del Marquis captive inside - dripping in paint. 
The strength of each horse eventually rips its rope plug from the structure, unleashing a slo-mo explosion of colour into the air, freeing the vibrant spirit of the Scissor Sisters across the barren wilderness.

Directed by Lorenzo Fonda (Metronomy, Jamie Woon), it's hypnotic, it's beautiful and I fall in love every time I see it.
