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.
