Published Feb 19, 2016Montreal three-piece Raveen are almost set to unveil a brand new single, but before they do, Exclaim! has got the exclusive premiere of the A-side "Accidents."
The band pride themselves on incorporating an eclectic array of influences into their experimental sound, citing everyone from Kanye West to Dave Brubeck to Caribou as inspiration. The trio's latest offering hears the band blending electronic music with live instrumentation, opening with an echoing, burbling beat that gets topped with precise, peppy percussion, mesmerizing synths and hazy vocals.
"The song is the first we wrote as a true three-piece since Peter joined us in 2014, so it's very dear to us," the band tells Exclaim! "It's an homage to Nina Simone and Vangelis about the importance of speaking your mind when it matters most."
The new single follows up the band's 2014 debut EP and it will be given a release party on February 24 in Montreal. Get a head start on the new material by giving "Accidents" a listen right now in the player below.
