The acclaimed Danish duo has recently received coverage from NPR, Stereogum, Noisey, Nylon, Brooklyn Vegan, and Q. The Raveonettes 2014 album ''Pe'ahi'' reached #5 on Billboard's ''Heatseekers'' and was praised by Mojo, NME, Boston Globe. Since 2003, they've issued seven albums , via Columbia, Vice, and their own Beat Dies imprint. ''We've fallen in love with Sharin and Sune all over again!'' says Hot Press, while Stereogum calls one of the singles ''...an eerie lullaby of sorts...glistening, humming synthpop.'' Now LA based, The Raveonettes are Sun Rose Wagner (guitar and vocals) and Sharin Foo (bass, guitar and vocals). Widely credited as one of the key influences in the garage rock revival of the noughties, The Raveonettes have rightfully earned their place in Rock ' n Roll history. Revered by the likes of Tom Petty, Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode), Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Little Steven and Johnny Marr, to name but a few, the band continue to evolve sonically and visually as their live shows continue to captivate audiences around the world. Their music is characterized by close vocal harmonies combined with hard-edged electric guitar sounds and liberal doses of noise. Their songs juxtapose the simplicity of 50s and 60s rock with intense electric instrumentation, driving beats, and dark lyrical content.
