Published Jan 29, 2016Danish indie rock duo the Raveonettes delivered a surprise album called Pe'ahi back in 2014, but they're mixing up their release format once again with a new set of songs dubbed an "anti-album."
The band plan to release a track per month over the 12 months of 2016, resulting in either a set of songs that will sound "schizophrenic and disjointed" or "potentially cohesive and related."
You can follow their "Rave-of-the-Month" playlist over here, where a new song will be added each month, bringing listeners along as they navigate the highs and lows of the upcoming year.
January's contribution has just arrived as a synthed-out shoegaze track titled "This World Is Empty (Without You)."
"Writing a simple song's super hard and challenging so it took awhile for this one to be just right," the band's Sune Rose Wagner explained in a press release. "The music, the words, the vibe, everything has to be just perfect. It's one of the only songs I've ever written where adding a guitar simply didn't work, not sure why, just happens I guess. The beat is my take on an '80s Freestyle beat a la Debbie Deb, and the overall vibe of the song is much darker for sure."
