The Ravonettes - Chain Gang of Love
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Ravonettes - Chain Gang of LoveThe Danish duo of Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner do for the ’60s girl group sound what the White Stripes’ Jack and Meg White do for country blues: inject their minimalist version with an invigorating dose of garage rock. The Ravonettes favor short, snappy three-minute ditties and heavenly boy-girl harmonies on songs that evoke both the Shangri-las (“Noisy Summer”) and the Ramones (“Heartbreak Stroll”). And the album’s title track brilliantly mixes earthly grunts with spacey tremolo. Oddly infectious.
