'Daylight cinema' is The Scissors' debut offering and has a very late 70's early 80's new wave feel about it. Plenty of energy, songs short and sweet, snappy half snarled vocals over stinging riffs and choppy rhythms, the occasional ska backbeat with psychedelic keyboards swirling behind the mix. Dislodged in time, yet a relevant retro hybrid for the present day, The Scissors clearly have their own sound but the musical references ring loud and clear and the band come over as an amalgam of so many who were around at that time, echoes of The Clash, The Teardrop Explodes, and Echo and the Bunnymen, and even touches of the Doors to go back further – it's quite a mix.

We're thrilled to be supporting The Quails on 15 May at Man On The Moon! After supporting Muse on their UK tour last year, the Quails strike out on their path to glory and make a welcome return to Cambridge, support comes from Stoke's Lost Scenes + Whisky Jax + The Scissors.
Indie-rock four piece The Quails have certainly made an impact on the music industry and are now set to play both Reading & Glastonbury this year.
