Beneath the sweet vocals, dreamy fuzz and jangling guitars, there is a darker edge to Danish duo, The Raveonettes. “Boys Who Rape Should All be Destroyed” was the title of a sunny track on their 2009 album, In and Out of Control, while new album Pe’ahi deals with the recent death of Sune Rose Wagner’s father and features a song, “Endless Sleeper,” about his near-death experience while surfing. While never straying too far from obvious Jesus and Mary Chain and shoegaze influences, the Raveonettes, now on their seventh album, always manage to keep things interesting.
