Scissor Sisters are an American band that formed in New York City in 2001. The group gained prominence after signing with the independent record label A Touch of Class and their songs "Electrobix" and "Comfortably Numb" (a Pink Floyd cover) were picked up by underground disc jockeys in nightclubs.[1] They have released four studio albums: Scissor Sisters (2004), Ta-Dah (2006), Night Work (2010) and Magic Hour (2012).[2] The group's remix EP, Remixed!, was released through A Touch of Class in September 2004 and the iTunes live EP iTunes Festival: London 2010 was released digitally in 2010. The band has also produced two video albums: We Are Scissor Sisters... And So Are You (2004) and Hurrah! A Year of Ta-Dah (2007).[3]

Scissor Sisters was released through Polydor Records in February 2004 in the United Kingdom and through Universal Records in July 2004 in the United States. Singles from the album included "Laura", "Take Your Mama", "Mary" and "Filthy/Gorgeous".[4] Scissor Sisters earned the group five awards, including three BRIT Awards (Best International Group, Best International Breakthrough Act, and Best International Album), a Bambi Prize (Shooting Star), and a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist. Ta-Dah was released through the same labels in September 2006. Singles included "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'", "Land of a Thousand Words", "She's My Man" and "Kiss You Off".[4] The album earned the group a second GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist and an Ivor Novello Award for Most Performed Work for "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'". Singles from Night Work included "Fire with Fire", "Any Which Way" and "Invisible Light".[4] The music video for the latter song earned Scissor Sisters and director Roger Bellés three nominations from the UK Music Video Awards. Singles from Magic Hour included "Shady Love", "Only the Horses", "Baby Come Home" and "Let's Have a Kiki".

Other recognitions include the Gig of the Year award from Virgin Radio for their performance at the 2004 V Festival, and the inclusion of Scissor Sisters and Ta-Dah on Out's "100 Greatest, Gayest Albums" list.[5][6] Scissor Sisters have also been recognized by the Grammy Awards (Best Dance Recording nomination for "Comfortably Numb"), International Dance Music Awards, Meteor Music Awards, NME Awards, O Music Awards and Q Awards.
