Get Your Weekend Started with the Raveonettes at Webster Hall

October 3rd, 2012

Sune Rose Wagner (vocals and guitar) and Sharin Foo (bass, guitar and vocals) formed the Raveonettes in Copenhagen more than a decade ago, earning some interesting comparisons in the process: the Everly Brothers because of their harmonies, the Jesus and Mary Chain because of their noisy guitars and the Velvet Underground because of their dark lyrics. Last month, the influential duo (above, performing “Railroad Tracks”) released their sixth album (stream it here), about which Rolling Stone says, “With its fuzzed-out haze settling over much of the record, Observator is filled with upbeat pop cuts.” In support of the stripped-down, more intimate new LP, the Raveonettes are working their way across the country. See them play Webster Hall on Friday night.
