The Raveonettes

Last week, the Raveonettes surprised us all by releasing the new album Pe’ahi without any prior notice. The album opens with the blaring, aggressive synth-rock of “Endless Sleeper,” and today you can watch that song’s very creepy music video, directed by the band’s Sune Rose Wagner. It begins with a long shot of a pair of people naked on the beach — almost like the love scene in From Here To Eternity — but eventually shifts into something more unsettling, and brings to mind the far darker beach scene from Jonathan Glazer’s recent Under The Skin. Watch it now.

Pe’ahi is out now via Beat Dies.

  1. I’m loving this album, I kind of ignored their last new (for better or for worse), but I’m glad to see where they’re at right now.

    • Same here. I was really into ‘Lust Lust Lust’, but I could never get into ‘Observator’.
      This new album, in my opinion, blows both of those albums out of the water. It is so great beginning to end. Has that awesome raw, kinda shoegazey, distorted/reverby sound that i’ve come to love so much. They deserve so much attention with this new one.

  2. *last two
    damned fingers/brain
