The Raveonettes are a danish rock and roll duo consisting of Sune Rose Wagner (guitar, instruments, vocals) and Sharin Foo (guitar and vocals). Their music is characterized by close two-part vocal harmony inspired by The Everly Brothers, coupled with hard-edged electric guitar overlaid with liberal doses of noise. Their songs juxtapose the structural and chordal simplicity of 50s and 60s rock with intense electric instrumentation, driving beats and often dark lyrical content, similar to another of the band’s influences, The Velvet Underground.
As authentic as Fifties-styled rock’n’roll gets, this new single from Danish duo Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo captures the vibe so perfectly that – for those who dig this kind of thing – it’s breathtaking. Reverberating with echoed guitars and the pair’s beautifully harmonised vocals, this is one of the highlights of their new Pretty In Black LP. If it’s all too retro for your tastes, clinical electronic wizards Funkstörung are on hand for a stop-start, digitized remix.
