The Skinny: The Raveonettes are excited to have recently premiered their first single “She Owns The Streets” – from their upcoming album Observator out September 11th on Vice Records. Inspired by their surroundings, The Raveonettes have always been able to capture the experiences and emotions of every day life. “She Owns The Streets” is a perfect example of this.
Songwriter Sune Rose Wagner says: “The real people I’d met and experiences I had over the last year in NY and Venice, CA all bled into these new songs. ‘She Owns The Streets’ for example is about a New York City street dancer. I’ve noticed her before dancing wildly on Bowery, running crazily in the street among the cabs and horrified passers-by. A friend of mine introduced me to her and we struck up a friendship. In 20 minutes I had written a song about the pleasures and pitfalls of being perceived as either a drug-crazed girl or an insane individual, simply because she dares to defy the laws of civility and conformity. Isolation can be a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t afford you this kind of inspiration.”
