What do you get when two guys and a girl from Belgium decided to cover a Siouxsie And The Banshees song from 1980? This video for “Happy House”, that’s what. I really dig their version of this song, with its steel drum rhythm and funky, wonky baseline beat. You know what it really sounds like to me? A Chromeo remix of a Fan Death cover of the song. And that’s not at all a bad thing. Can’t wait to hear something original from these guys.
The original Siouxsie And The Banshees song is one of my all-time favorites. If your life is empty from never having heard it before, you can remedy that right here:
For some reason this new cover of “Happy House” by Shindu made me think of The Juan MacLean song, “Happy House”, which, I discovered upon re-listening to it, appears to be in no relation to the Siouxsie song. It’s still an awesome, amazing song though, so I figured, why not share it? It’s probably the best modern disco track to come out since disco died in 1980. Died because of songs like Siouxsie’s “Happy House”.
