The Raveonettes

Combining the noisy swells of the Jesus and Mary Chain with melodic elements of '50s rock & roll, the Raveonettes formed in Copenhagen during 2001. Guitarist Sune Rose Wagner had tried assembling a band for several years, traveling between New York City, Las Vegas, Hollywood, and an island outside of Seattle in his search for like-minded musicians. A longtime fan of Bob Dylan, he also prized the songwriting of Buddy Holly, the harmonies of the Everly Brothers, and the guitar work of Mark Knopfler, although it was the lovely dissonance of Sonic Youth and the Jesus and Mary Chain that ultimately motivated Wagner to pursue music professionally. Alas, his stay in America didn't exactly pan out, and Wagner returned to Denmark, where he connected with bassist/vocalist Sharin Foo. A fan of the Beatles and the Velvet Underground, Foo had also studied qawwali and Hindustani classical music during a six-month stay abroad. She had also spent some time performing in Copenhagen's local venues.

Once formed, the Raveonettes created a set of rules that governed the creation of their first album. The project would be recorded entirely in B-flat minor, surrounded by only three chords, and each song had to be less than three minutes long. Ride cymbals were not allowed, either. What resulted from those unconventional specifications was a fuzzy, dark, cinematic set of songs entitled Whip It On, which fused classic garage rumblings with frenzied electronic bits. Whip It On was released in Europe in summer 2002 courtesy of Crunchy Frog; one month later, the Raveonettes waltzed into N.Y.C.'s CBGB's for an American introduction. Producer Richard Gottehrer (Blondie, Joan Armatrading, the Go-Go's) caught the performance and enlisted as the producer for the group's next album. A deal with Columbia Records followed before the year's end, positioning the Raveonettes as Copenhagen's most promising export.

The Chain Gang of Love appeared in September 2003. The first single from the album, "That Great Love Sound," became a minor hit, due in part to a creepy video featuring Foo and Wagner dreaming up ways to kill each other. Sessions for their next album began in late 2004, and Wagner cast aside all songwriting and recording rules (as well as guitar distortion) in favor of classic songcraft and lots of rich, lush reverb. The resulting album, 2005's Pretty in Black, featured guest spots from Suicide's Martin Rev, Ronnie Spector, and the Velvet Underground's Moe Tucker. In early 2008, the band returned to a minimalist sound with Lust Lust Lust, followed one year later by In and Out of Control. Both records were released by their new label Vice. The band's fifth studio album, the synth-heavy new wave-inspired Raven in the Grave, featured the single "Forget That You're Young" and was released in April of 2011. The following year, the band rang in their 10th anniversary together with the release of their sixth album and a return to noise pop form, Observator. While keeping their usual low profile in between albums, the duo found time to contribute a version of "The End" to a Doors compilation album, A Psych Tribute to the Doors, in 2014. Later that same year, the band's seventh album, Pe'ahi, was released. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi

Like a David Lynch movie without as much gory murder and insanity.
I love their fuzzy, scuzzy, rockabilly '50s vibe, I can listen to them endlessly! Just an idea.. Someone needs to make a film that's set in the 1950s with The Raveonettes doing the soundtrack. The film would have the themes, stories, & mood of their songs. I can picture it in my mind while I'm listening to their albums. There would be vintage motorcycles, classic cars & moody characters sort of like in 'Rebel Without A Cause' & maybe 'Grease' but not a musical, more of a serious movie.
Interesting Bio ; Raveonette Music :P
Wow.
I love this band... So much
So true. Never mind anything else. Just so true about relationship s . Talk, talk, talk...
creamed jeans
LAST DANCE....
I bought The Chain Gang Of Love album as a teenager, I still love to play it unlike most of the other music I bought as a teenager. Why the Jesus & Mary Chain comments? This is The Raveonettes page.
Saw them in concert - it was great but I didn't like the fact that we heard lots of bass but no one seemed to be playing one.
FOLLOW ME AND I WILL FOLLOW BACK!!!!!!!! ! ! !

Lovely :)
In and Out of Control is still my favorite album.
Very cool. They have a sound that merges many seminal bands and they still remain unique. A task that is not easy.
These 2 R great! I just discovered them by making a Trailer Trash Tracys station. Atmospheric & rhythmic in very pleasing way.
In and Out of Control is a great album, please add to their discography!
Excellent! Saw Jesus & Mary Chain a long time ago.

Well it does it for me.
All night long.
Really cool. I like this alot.
Lots, Lots, Lots!
Not doing it for me.
Not tryin to be a jerk...but sounds like they've been listening to Papercuts lately.
I first heard The Raveonettes when I was 15 (I fell in love with their track 'Love in a Trashcan'). Since then, I've been an avid fan. I adore their new album (although Pretty in Black will always be my favorite). They are always creating fresh and edgy new sounds, which I admire. Their songs can be both soft and passionate, ranging from ambient vocals on 'Here Comes Mary' to violent percussion on 'Attack of the Ghost Riders'.
