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.

TRACKLIST:
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.
