Italian Synth Act COMMON FLAWS Covers SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES

26 October 2020

Giacomo Oberti, the fontman and songwriter of sparkling Italian guitar/synth
pop combo The Bankrobber goes disco. With his fresh project Common Flaws
he aims at the dance floor.

The first effort is a cover of Happy House, a darkish single by goth queen Siouxsie and her Banshees. The song was released 40 years ago, on 8 March 1980 and featured on their Kaleidoscope album.

With an ongoing deep bass beat Common Flaws gives the already vibrant rhythm of Happy House a 90s techno resonance. The sampled, female vocals come from the 1999 romantic comedy Notting Hill with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant.

This is the happy house
We’re happy here in the happy house
To forget ourselves and pretend all’s well
There is no hell, ooh-ooh

Watch the cool clip here and feel the vibe …
