NYC Darkwave Duo R. MISSING Release Atmospheric Reimagination Of SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES’ Hit Single “SPELLBOUND”

11th August 2023 0 By Jon Deaux

R.Missing pays homage to goth rock legends, Siouxsie and the Banshees, by offering a fresh take on a beloved classic, “Spellbound.” R. Missing’s transformative rendition is the downtempo, darkwave answer to the frenetic, post-punk pace of the original, featuring swirling synth drones, drum machine beats, shimmering keys, and the melodic whisperings of the vocal line, floating just above. This delicately layered, minimalist cohesion of sonic elements creates a delicate, ethereal soundscape that showcases their unique, dark synthpop sound.


Stream/download the single:


Missing is an enigmatic darkwave duo based in New York City, 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. “Spellbound” arrives hot on the heels of R. Missing’s newest single, “My Time as a Ghostly Someone Else,” released July 21st, and serves as the titular track from the upcoming full-length feature, Spellbound – A Tribute To Siouxsie & The Banshees, available worldwide on August 25th.
