The New York City based duo R. Missing have released a cover version of Siouxsie And The Banshees’ hit single “Spellbound”. R. Missing’s version is what they call “a downtempo, darkwave answer to the frenetic, post-punk pace of the original”.

“Spellbound” is the follow-up single to July’s “My Time as a Ghostly Someone Else” and serves as the titular track from the upcoming full-length “Spellbound – A Tribute To Siouxsie & The Banshees”, available worldwide on August 25th. This compilation showcases contributions from bands such as Kap Bambino, The KVB, and Night Beats, alongside music veterans, including former Banshee, Jon Klein, who joins forces with PiL bassist, Jah Wobble, plus Xiu Xiu, Skold, and many more.

R. Missing is comprised of vocalist/bassist, Sharon Shy, and multi-instrumentalist Toppy Frost. R. Missing is the duo’s latest creative innovation, emerging from the Morrissey-influenced, indie rock shadows of their previous project, The Ropes.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
