The Raveonettes hail from Copenhagen, Denmark. Their unique brand of indie-rock is characterized by two-part harmonies inspired by the Everly Brothers, and gritty noise guitar.
The band's primary members are Sharin Foo on bass, guitar, and vocals…
And Sune Rose Wagner on guitar and vocals.
According to their Wikipedia page, “their songs juxtapose the structural and chordal simplicity of the 1950s and 1960s rock with intense electric instrumentation, driving beats, and often dark lyrical content.” That sounds pretty accurate to us.
Wagner and Foo met in Copenhagen and soon began writing music, resulting in their 2001 debut “Whip It On,” which they produced themselves.
After Rolling Stone magazine’s David Fricke raved about them in his coverage of Denmark’s SPOT Festival, several major labels came calling.
Fun fact: The band’s first full-length album, 2003’s “Chain Gang of Love” was written entirely in the key of B-flat major.
The band announced that in every month of 2016, they would be recording and releasing a new song on their website in a series called “Rave-Sound-of-the-Month.” This collection of songs has been dubbed the “Anti-Album.”
Their Jan. 21 setlist included the following songs: “Sisters,” “Killer in the Streets,” “Hallucinations,” “Dead Sound,” “Blush,” “Break Up Girls!,” “Oh, I Buried You Today,” “Love Can Destroy Everything”…
“Chain Gang of Love,” “Love in a Trashcan,” “That Great Love Sound,” “Attack of the Ghost Riders,” “My Tornado,” “Bowels of the Beast,” and “Aly, Walk with Me.”
Their one-song encore consisted of “Kill!”
Gateway Drugs opened the show.
The psych-rock group formed in LA in early 2012.
The band released their debut full-length, “Magick Spells,” in 2015 and embarked on a U.S. tour with Swervedriver afterward.
