[Listen] The Raveonettes - "Observations"
A few weeks back, Danish dream pop duo The Raveonettes announced their sixth LP Observator, the follow-up to last year's Raven in the Grave. The album, which will be released on September 11th through VICE Records, now has a lead single titled "Observations." The song features a hauntingly beautiful piano and the evocative wailing of a slide guitar combining to form the crux of a wholly eery number. Head over to RollingStone.com to stream the track, which singer/guitarist Sune Rose Wagner describes as "sort of the blueprint for this album. It captures a universal feeling of the outsider in his daily life, his longing and losses in love and his primordial instinct of survival."
The Raveonettes are also going on tour in support of the album, with their first performance set for September 21st in Portland. Check out their tour schedule after the jump.
