Frenchy and the Punk, the duo of Samantha Stephenson and Scott Helland (Deep Wound) have released a new single that is going to be beloved by fans of cabaret punk and classic 80's goth. The immediate comparison you're going to make when you hear "Come in a Play" is Siouxsie and the Banshees. Stephenson's voice is particularly Siouxsie on this one, and it just has that entire vibe going for it. But this is a much more organic and less New Wave version of that sound which gives it a Dresden Dolls feel, without being too Dresden Dolls-like. It's October, and this kind of music is even more appealing than it normally is, but "Come in and Play" should become a favorite year round.
