Souisxie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banshees has just composed a song for the season 3 finale of the hit series Hannibal. This is the first song to be released by Sioux in eight years. The song is refreshingly good and represents a mature release from the mother of proto-goth. It is not often that after such a long gap in any musical artists career that they can return with a piece of work with is both enjoyable and represents a mature evolution in the arc of their development, especially so late in their career. We hope that their will be more to come from Souisxie Sioux as this song really caught our attention. To hear us talk more about Sioux’s return to the music scene, be sure to listen to the first episode of our podcast.
