Single Review – The Raveonettes – This Is Where It Ends

The Copenhagen Noise Rock duo are approaching the conclusion of their Rave of the Month series which has given us a new song each month and will culminate into a full album come December. This concept has worked well on the whole, providing new material on a regular basis, but with each song released like a single not all of them have been single tracks of course. They clearly wanted the album to work as a flowing piece come the end of the year and they’ve considered that throughout. Their latest track ‘This Is Where It Ends’ is a gentle and typically unnerving in its lingering chords and tones with washed out percussion and electronica playing in a basic waltz signature; their vocals hauntingly sweeping across the track. It’s another subtle track, but one that keeps the the Raveonettes talented standards. You get the feeling the need one more powerful or evocative track before the year is out however.
