    Pe'ahi sounds like their strongest gallery of timeless anthems so far. [Aug 2014, p. 204]

    Far from diving deeper into the bleak, sonic maelstrom that has characterised most of their work, Pe'ahi is their most open, emotional record to date.

    The result is an atmospheric sound, refined without losing its feisty, sometimes bitter vitality. [Sep 2014, p.98]

    The contrast of light and dark has always driven the Raveonettes’ music, but it’s especially effective on this beautifully realized collection that shows the couple to have plenty of tricks left in their already unique and compelling sonic bag.

    Despite their varied approach, though, these songs remain pop nuggets with hummable melodies, swathed in layers of distortion but maintaining their sweet appeal underneath.
  6. 70
    If Pe’ahi is a tribute to Sune’s father, it’s a warts-and-all portrayal of a turbulent relationship, but one delivered with a tenderness and intensity that propels the very concept of the retro garage duo into a fresh sonic stratosphere. Drop in, it’s an exhilarating descent.
  7. 50
    Despite its ambitions, Pe’ahi ripples through without much fanfare, another breeze fallen short of a storm.

    Taken out of context of their discography, this is probably a mildly interesting take on noise pop. In context though Pe'ahi is the bandTaken out of context of their discography, this is probably a mildly interesting take on noise pop. In context though Pe'ahi is the band sounding bolder and in a way more streamlined than ever. There is much aggression and layers of noise on just about every track. The more subdued ones are still strong. A very slick, fresh album. Expand
