8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 18 July 2014
Having been a little disappointed at the lack of pop tunes on the new Holly Herndon offering, I now turn to a band who I'm confident will deliver on that front. The Raveonettes have been plugging away for years honing their darkpop/shoegaze aesthetic, and interestingly on 'Pe'ahi' they combine this with some surfpop and tropicalia elements to excellent effect, their sultry, dreamy songs finding an almost Twilight Singers-esque warm pulse on tracks like 'Killer In The Streets'.   It's actually a really well realised album, laid back and thoughtful and often more upbeat and likeable than this pair can be. I particularly like it when they're getting their guitar distortion on - they're really good at carving out a wall of shoegazey fuzz and it's particularly effective here in conjunction with that laid back Californian feel, the bright melodies and girl-group harmonies partially obscured by the sonic juggernaut they're riding. I'm getting good vibes from this record, they're a band I've historically struggled to get on with but this is my favourite thing I've heard from them to date.
