Published Jul 21, 2017Montreal electro trio Raveen release their new album Always next week, but Exclaim! is giving you the chance to hear the record in its entirety right now.
The dreamy nine-song set was primarily written over the course of the past year — one the band describes as "a tumultuous year of ups and down."
The recording itself began at James Benjamin's country house in Magog, QC, and was finished at Breakglass Studios in Montreal. "Many espresso-fuelled sessions later, we emerged with a fully formed record," the band tell Exclaim! "Our ears were tired, but we felt redeemed. It's our best work to date and we're very excited to share it."
Raveen add, "The lyrics cover stories of loss and repair. They weave between scenes from reality to images from the world we paint within. But really they're all just love songs."
