Today, Montreal singer-songwriter Laraw returns with new single “Scissors.” Chronicling the highs and lows of romance and breakups, the irresistible bop comes alongside a music video, directed by Gerado Alcaine and co-directed by Laraw, that perfectly captures the melancholy and angst of the release.

In keeping with the Laraw’s personal and raw production, the “Scissors” lyrics narrate the angsty effects of a heartbreak, complemented by her stunning vocals. “Scissors is about the grief of having a loved one completely destroy you,” said Laraw. “Knowing they will and just letting it happen.”

Scissors is for sure the most important song I’ve ever written and marked a new chapter of my life” said Laraw. “I got to actually meet myself, grow, and learn that the first person you should always love is yourself.”

With a catchy melody and unforgettable chorus, the emotionally driven indie-pop track is sure to be this summer’s quintessential heartbreak anthem.

Montreal-born singer-songwriter Laraw (Lara Rawadi) is a pop music anomaly. Hailing from Lebanese and Moroccan roots, Laraw can speak and sing in French, English and Arabic. With so many ways to express herself, it’s no wonder music comes naturally and has proven to be the perfect cathartic vehicle. Laraw’s sound draws inspiration from her years studying music production and sound design, and her interest in videos games. Her goal is to rage against all the outdated music industry standards of the past and create something that is authentic and doesn’t strive to be flawless, just honest.
