Retro rockers The Raveonettes just released their third full-length album Lust Lust Lust on Vice in the US in February and are touring the US in support. The Danish duo, discovered by Rolling Stone editor David Fricke at the SPOT Music Festival, are best known for their 50’s and 60’s driving rock rhythms and dark lyrical content. Lust Lust Lust explores, well lust, in all its various forms from singer Sune Rose Wagner’s perspective and also brings back the heavy distortion used by the band in their early works. Wagner and band mate Sharin Foo met in Copenhagen and soon after formed the band self-recording their first album Whip It, which was composed all in b-flat minor. The band relocated to New York in 2002 and hit the punk scene where they caught the attention of famed producer Richard Gottehrer, who worked with Blondie and The Go Go’s among others. He produced their first full-length album Chain Gang of Love, which achieved great critical success. Recently, The Raveonettes were selected to be a part of The Gap’s Sound of Color campaign along with local favorites The Blakes. At KLRU studios, Sune Rose Wagner, Sharin Foo, and touring drummer Leah Shapiro amazed listeners with their gorgeous, reverb-laden set.
