I’d heard of Siouxsie & The Banshees before, but I’d no idea that’s how Siouxsie was spelled.

I got all the way to the chorus of this song before I recognized it. It was quite the journey. The song starts out sounding VERY 80s, but sheds some of that sound during the first verse. The song still feels very much of its time, or maybe a year or two before its time, but it’s certainly still an enjoyable listen.

The rest of the album is really cool. It veers into dark and almost gothic territory. It’s clear that Siouxsie had a strong influence on a lot of performers who came after her, and you can hear hints of that here.
