INFO: Part Brit-pop and part indie rock, with a campy persona and dreamy lyrics to match, Scissors for Lefty are a great addition to the post-punk revival of the new millennium. Scissors For Lefty's story involves Malaysian pop songs and intense Beatles fixations, influential British indie labels and late night hot tub parties, '80s dance nights and KISS solo records. But mostly it's a story about friendship. "You find friends you like to hang out with, you need some glue, you need a reason to hang out and spend time together, and music is our easy excuse," says singer/guitarist Bryan Garza, 27.
