This one will be short and sweet. My good friend Helena came whirling up to me the other day at Front 312’s “Ceremony” show at Liar’s Club and immediately said.
“Oh My God! Did you see the Raveonette’s video I posted on your Facebook?”
Unfortunately, at the moment of our interaction, I had not. Thus, I quickly corrected this upon rising this morning as I found the link, followed it andbeheld their newest, beautiful and, arguably, steam-powered music video.
Granted, there are some strong (and I would say uncharacteristically) “ghothy/emo”-esque themes here, but I also hold to say, all in all, that I found the video a beautiful, entertaining and whimsical piece of work. Duly, I am a huge fan of The Raveonette’s stripped down fuzz-fueled anachronistic sound. So perhaps I am a bit biased.
