  • they're both female singers and they both sound more than okay. That's where the comparison with siouxsie stops.
  • It's always a bit diluted when slapping a 'sounds like Siousxie ' label on a young band. I agree their sound does carry some of the tribalism and vocal stylings of the Banshees but to me I hear more Nico, Bunnymen, x-mal and Cranes influences in their sound.
  • Yeah, Rhizomes is a great album, pretty much underrated. Good production, vocals, feminin touching, desperate atmosphere... i don't know
  • god, but why are they so underrated? Rhizomes was brilliant, just a perfect album.
  • Just found out about these lovely ladies. Already a gem in my books.
  • physically attracted to the sound. in an animalistic way.
