Shindu – Happy House EP

I heard the riff to this tune the other day in The Weeknd’s ‘House of Balloons’ and to my shame I couldn’t think what the hell it was. I mean it’s one of my favourite Siouxsie and the Banshees tracks and my mind was a gaping blank.

Imagine my surprise then, when I heard this version of Happy House by Belgian trio Shindu. This version is a beach party by comparison, keeping the riff, but replacing the guitar of the original with a steel drum, shaking its bikini clad ass down the shoreline. Despite the party atmosphere though, the lyrics retain the ‘sarcastic’ tones of Siouxsie’s vocal. We’re singing about happy things, but we’re not really very happy at all. We’re all quite sane!
