Kiss You Off

Scissor Sisters
Scissor lady Ana Matronic takes the lead micstand two years too late. Being the only surviving vestige of the edginess that made Scissor Sisters Mk1 the CSS of their day, Ana’s song has a lot riding on its bejewelled shoulders. But ‘Kiss You Off’ isn’t the face-covered-in-cocaine joy bubble we need it to be. The ‘stomping’ is more of a plod and ‘glitpop’ is more glam rock. Come back to the dirty backstreet disco, Scissor Sisters, we miss you.
