The Raveonettes - Pe'ahi

Today, with no advance notice, Danish narco-rock duo the Raveonettes released Pe’ahi, their seventh album, out into the world. The album is named for a Maui surfing hotspot, and band member Sune Rose Wagner says, “It’s about a horrific near-drowning experience I had in Hawaii some years ago.” On the album, the band worked with M83 producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen; it follows the band’s 2012 LP Observator. And they’ve already shared two of the new album’s songs. “Sisters” is a blaring, headlong piece of processed, vaguely electronic shoegaze, while “Endless Sleeper” juices the band’s characteristic reverbed-out garage-rock sound with an active drum machine. Those two songs and the album’s tracklist are below.

01 “Endless Sleeper”
02 “Sisters”
03 “Killer In The Streets”
04 “Wake Me Up”
05 “Z-Boys”
06 “A Hell Below”
07 “The Rains of May”
08 “Kill!”
09 “When Night Is Almost Done”
10 “Summer Ends”

Pe’ahi is out now on Beat Dies.

  1. Happy, happy, joy, joy. What a nice surprise this is. One of my absolute fave bands drops something on us with no notice!!! Thanks Sune and Sharin!!!

  2. Mmmm, has kind of a Lust Lust Lust vibe to it.

  3. surprise party

  4. As a diehard Raveonette fan I can tell you this is a return to the Lust Lust Lust kind of thing they used to do. I’ve watched as they’ve backed off the wall of sound and fuzz tones that made them great. This thing is really fuzzy and really loud.

    This will dominate my music player for quite a bit.
