the raveonettes' sharin foo and sune rose wagner release their new album 'observatory', via beat dies records. throughout their impressive career, the danish duo has explored sonic territories ranging from lush pop songs to reverb-drenched soundscapes and continually celebrated life through songwriting. all of
these forms are evident in 'observator', sumptuous and beautiful in its sound, but bleak and sad at its heart. the bubbly pop-rock number 'she owns the
streets' was inspired by singer / guitarist sune rose wagner's recent friendship with a new york city dancer. "i've noticed her before dancing wildly on
bowery, running crazily in the street among the cabs and horrified passers-by," he said. "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".
