Dancin’ Shoes Required

by | Mar 22, 2007

Angela Poe at Eenie Meenie Records in L.A. sent me this new track by Scissors For Lefty. The San Francisco band is coming off several rolicking performances at SXSW, and is currently on East Coast spring tour. They play the Greenville, SC area tomorrow night, Durham, NC the next night and points north thereafter.

Spin Magazine has called the band’s music, “sublime electro-synth.” Billboard says the band plays “exuberant, fast-moving danceable rock/pop full of darting keyboards, Strokes-like guitar riffs, and disco rhythms.” SFL has garned loads of positive press since bursting onto the scene in 2000. They’ve also shared the stage with Arctic Monkeys, Paul Weller, the Fratelli’s, the Fiery Furnaces, Panic! at the Disco, and Dirty Pretty Things, among others.

The band’s new album, “Underhanded Romance,” will be released in the U.S. on June 12th.
