Danish indie-rock duo The Raveonettes are set to visit the Bristol Fleece this winter to promote their new album, Observator.
Throughout their impressive career, The Raveonettes (aka Sune Rose Wagner and Sharin Foo) have explored sonic territories ranging from lush pop songs to reverb-drenched soundscapes.
Their music is characterized by close two-part vocal harmonies, reputedly inspired by The Everly Brothers, coupled with hard-edged electric guitar overlaid with liberal doses of noise, similar to The Jesus and Mary Chain.
All of these styles are evident in Observator – sumptuous and beautiful in its sound, but bleak and sad at its heart.
Due out in September, Observator is a special record for both fans and the band themselves, in that it marks the group’s 10th anniversary.
So far, two singles have been released from the album – Observations and She Owns The Street.
The Raveonettes hit Bristol Fleece on December 4, 2012. Tickets go on sale at 9am on July 11, 2012.
