The Raveonettes with Coves Details
The Raveonettes with Coves
The Raveonettes are a Danish indie rock duo with Sune Rose Wagner on guitar, instruments, and vocals, and Sharin Foo on bass, guitar and vocals. Their music is characterized by close vocal harmonies combined with hard-edged electric guitar overlaid with liberal doses of noise. Their songs juxtapose the simplicity of ’50s and ’60s rock with intense electric instrumentation, driving beats, and dark lyrical content. When not touring the world, Sharin and Sune reside in Los Angeles, CA.
Basements hung with fairy lights, 60s tape reels spinning antique spools, drums dusted with white powder. Gritty riffs and psych rock washes slither beneath airy, blissed-blank Nico vocals spinning spectral tales of shattered romance. A beautifully ruined pair – he a leather-clad glowering guitar phantom, she a glacial, broken bombshell – blow glitter at each other through the flashes from old cameras.
This is the world of Coves, a classic psych-garage aesthetic vacuum-sealed forever in one time, one space. The space is Castle Grayskull, the live-in studio that musical mastermind John Ridgard helped build in a disused office in Leamington Spa and where their debut album was recorded. And the time covers the duration of singer and lyricist Beck Wood’s last big relationship, laid out in her songs from first flutter to final choke.
