The Raveonettes: She Owns The Streets

Danish duo The Raveonettes will be releasing their sixth album 'Observator' on September 11.  Reuniting with producer Richard Gottehrer for the first time since 2005,  Sharin Foo and Sune Wagner recorded for seven days at legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles, the city Foo now calls home.

A gorgeous ode to self-expression, 'She Owns The Streets' was inspired by Loan Tran, a young woman in New York City whom Wagner had noticed dancing around the city; they were introduced and struck up a friendship.

The video was directed by London/Berlin based German photographer Peter Kaaden.

The Raveonettes kick off their big fall tour with a show in Portland, Oregon on September 21. (NOTE: two shows are scheduled in Toronto and Montreal the first week of October.)   After a show in Mexico City on October 14, the tour moves on to Europe on October 20 before wrapping up in Istanbul, Turkey on December 15.
