Bertie Blackman - Peek-a-Boo (new video!)

Let it be known that Siouxsie is one of our most beastly favorite artists ever, blending style, drama and pop musicialities into her own eccentric outpourings. So anytime I see that someone has covered any of her original pieces, my first inclination is to cringe, however, when being shown that Bertie Blackman, the Aussie singer whose voice we're completely enamored with, tackled a Sioux-song, we went "well, ok..." then got to loving on it.

Earlier this year, Blackman recorded a cover of Siouxsie's Peek-A-Boo, a fine and fitting homage to a tune that we hold pretty close and dear to our hearts. While nothing may ever eclipse the original (did you know that the song was built on a loop in reverse of a brasspart with drums that the Banshees previously arranged a year prior to releasing the song?), Blackman sets her sights on the eerie nature of the song and comes away with a polished piece of work that makes us proud.

 

Now, we have an equally spooky video to accompany Bertie's cover of Peek-A-Boo.

 

Give it a watching now.
