Scissor Sisters Run Free In “Only The Horses” Video

A large portion of Scissor Sisters‘ video for their Magic Hour single “Only The Horses” is populated by, well, only the horses, actually. The clip shows a pack of four of the beautiful beasts — the spirits of the Sisters, if you will — charging through the desert, pulling ropes behind them. We later come to find that the physical bodies of Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Babydaddy and Del Marquis are trapped in a pyramid and bathed in paint. The ropes eventually pull the stops out of the band’s prison-like structure, leaving their colors to splash into the open air. The scenic video is as beautiful to watch as the song, co-produced by and Alex Rhida, is to listen to. What are your thoughts on the clip?
