Liars: “Scissor”

Following lengthy stints in cities around the USA and abroad, adventurous art-rock trio Liars returned to LA and released an album that was inspired by the city of its origin.

Fans of the band have known to expect the unexpected, and Sisterworld is no different. “Scissor,” the album’s opener and successful single, morphs from harmonized wails to big rock action. Beautiful ascending strings, guitar, and piano highlight “Here Comes All the People,” which builds to a tension.
