Lots of familiar old rhythm tracks underlie the icy songs on the Raveonettes’ latest album. Maybe a bit more downbeat than previous albums, which makes it all feel a bit shoegaze. That’s good.
This is just so catchy. I love the Raveonettes’ sound, all reverbed wall-of-sound guitar and OTT ’50s-style vocals. I can’t resist this opportunity to reminisce about seeing the Raveonettes play at the Fuji Rock Festival in 2003. Nice to hear that they’re still going strong and their studied Scandinavian cool is intact.
