Golden Kanine

Scissors and Happiness

Release Date: 10/07/2011 · Format: CD · Catalog-No: GRCD 727

Scissors & Happiness” contains eleven songs about friendship, love and the trials of life.

Golden Kanine started off as a loud guitar based Indie-Rock band. Since then, the band has started to experiment with more diverse instruments and a more intimate approach. Now the sound includes mandolins, trombones and soaring feedback.
Some big influences are Ohia, Neil Young, Wolf Parade, Modest Mouse and Will Oldham to name a few.

“Scissors & Happiness” was recorded on the floor above one of Sweden’s largest rock venues. So even if there is a touch of nature’s solitude in the songs and minds of the band, the busy street outside and the bar noises sure contributed to the album’s final sound. It’s the bands wish that people will be able to cry as well as dance to the songs. It was the first album by Golden Kanine, released in 2009 in Scandinavia and Germany alone and limited to 1000 copies. Having released the band´s critically acclaimed second album “Oh Woe!”, Glitterhouse Records is proud to offer a international Re-release of the band’s fantastic first album.
