“Rock ‘N’ Roll Radio,” the latest EP by Siouxsie Suicide, dives headfirst into a chaotic fusion of Punk Rock, Industrial Electronics, and Urban Decay. Led by DJ Deadguy, who handles guitar, vocals, bass, and electronics, the EP is a four-track exploration of raw and rebellious energy.
The opening track, “Out of Control,” delivers electronic beats with swirling mechanical flourishes. It’s a three-chord rock ‘n’ roll anthem inspired by the Rolling Stones. It expresses the desire to party, and yearns to be out of control.
“Haus Musik,” the second track, unleashes driving distorted guitars and gritty, hoarse vocals. Originally intended as a cover, it evolved into a distinctive experimentation.
“Siouxsie Suicide,” the third track, is a nod to various bands and singers. The catchy guitar tunes and commanding vocals make this a standout piece, demonstrating Deadguy’s grounded and compelling performance.
Closing the EP is the “Breaking The Law (Radio Mix).” Opening with zooming synth lines and hard-hitting drums, it introduces a propulsive rhythm. Deadguy’s thick, emotive voice takes center stage, delivering a unique rendition of Judas Priest’s classic.
The BBC Introducing- featured band, Siouxsie Suicide, recorded this EP during Halloween 2022 at the Whitby Goth Weekend festival on a portable rig. With an unapologetic blend of influences and a penchant for genre-bending, Siouxsie Suicide stakes its claim as a unique force in the punk and electronic music scene.
