Ashlee and the Banshees

I never thought I'd see the day when Ashlee Simpson makes a song that reminds me of Siouxsie Sioux and the Banshees. But, well, there you have it, I guess.

Oh, God.

I was dreadingdreadingdreading clicking on the link because SATB are my favourite band. It's not as bad as I thought, though. Where exactly do you hear them? There's maybe a little bit of "Cities In Dust" in the opening chords...

I think it's predominately Ashlee's voice - which sounds different to usual - and the fact that the song is very very European and, yes, that chord progression sounds very Siouxsie to me.

A surprisingly great song from Ashlee here, and a fantastic video to match.

2007 especially has been a cruddy year for pop videos, and here this comes out of nowhere with a beat matched rubik's cube, "evil" dark haired Ashlee, surrealism, balloons and a straight jacket. Magic.
