Into the Night serves up the best Raveonettes material since 2008's Lust Lust Lust.
The Raveonettes waste no time getting Into the Night off the ground. A vintage sounding guitar kicks off the title track before it explodes into one of the band’s most memorable songs. Their 1950’s pop revivalism-meets-Jesus and Mary Chain approach is nearing perfection and “Into the Night” is proof. After an opening as strong as that it would’ve been easy for this EP to lose momentum but the band has consistently proven to be in peak form across EPs and Into the Night ends up being one of their absolute strongest. The band’s matured a bit since their start, tinkering with their formula and dynamics over the course of a very impressive career. Into the Night‘s best moment ends up being its last—“Bad Ghosts” has a legitimate claim as one of the band’s best songs. Make no mistake, The Raveonettes are back and out for blood.
