Listen: The Raveonettes — “She Owns the Streets”Posted by Rob Hedberg
The Raveonettes have debuted the second single, “She Owns the Streets”, off their forthcoming album.
On Sept. 11 The Raveonettes will celebrate their ten year anniversary with the release of their new studio album entitled Observator.
The danish dream pop duo decided to work once again with producer Richard Gottehrer, who assisted the Raveonettes on their sophomore album Pretty In Black. In a recent interview with Spin, Sune Wagner (singer/guitarist) opened up about the decision saying: “I’ve known him for 10 years now. He and his wife are, in a sense, my American parents. I always hang out with them. We’re neighbors in New York. They have a beautiful house in Nyack. I have my own room there. I go up on weekends, so we hang out all the time and we listen to music and we also work together. We produced the Dum Dum Girls. So when I started [writing], I played songs for him because I always appreciate his opinion. One day I said, “Well you should produce because you seem super-engaged in it.” It was a very simple choice.”
The Raveonettes also recently debuted their second single from their new album, “She Owns The Streets”. The infectious pop melody was inspired by a recent dancer Wagner had procured a friendship with, stating: “I’ve noticed her before dancing wildly on Bowery, running crazily in the street among the cabs and horrified passers-by,” he said. “In 20 minutes I had written a song about the pleasures and pitfalls of being perceived as either a drug-crazed girl or an insane individual, simply because she dares to defy the laws of civility and conformity. Isolation can be a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t afford you this kind of inspiration.”
