The Raveonettes "She Owns the Streets"
Published Jul 12, 2012Danish dream popsters the Raveonettes are set to release their new album Observator on September 11 through VICE Records, but you can listen to single "She Owns the Street" now.
The jangly pop tune was reportedly inspired by a New York City dancer, who was described by singer/guitarist Sune Rose Wagner as "dancing wildly on Bowery, running crazily in the street among the cabs and horrified passers-by."
According to Consequence of Sound, he continued to say, "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."
