Samantha Stephenson of Frenchy and the Punk gets compared to Siouxsie quite a bit (we've made that comparison ourselves), so it's fitting that the duo have released a cover of Siouxsie and the Banshees' "Cities in Dust." It's an extremely faithful cover of the original classic, although a more stripped down version. It still has that classic goth sound, just not as big of a sound. Frenchy and the Punk have gifted us a perfect cover of a favorite song, and considering Siouxsie and the Banshees are always a pick this time of year, their timing is superb.
Samantha Stephenson says of Siouxsie and the Banshees:
“I was aware of Siouxsie and the Banshees, but mostly for her stunning look. I loved her image. She seemed to exude fierceness and confidence but I wasn’t all that familiar with the band’s sound. It’s really because our fans constantly mentioned her name that got me falling down the Banshees’ rabbit hole some years ago."
