The Raveonettes – Into The Night EP

When a band makes a career out of peddling songs full of dark lyrical themes of murder, drugs, betrayal, lust, crime and suicide, they usually aren’t heralded for releasing catchy pop tunes. Featuring healthy doses of The Jesus & Mary Chain and surf pop, The Raveonettes have enjoyed a lengthy career doing just that.

The duo’s ability to balance depravity and sadness with uptempo beats and fuzzy power chords has always resulted in enjoyable, slightly morose songs that deliver on a visceral level.

The band has stated that the songs on Into The Night are an ode to lost loves, but I had too much fun with this EP to think about a bunch of bitchy exes.
