Perhaps the biggest surprise is that 'Sisters' lists itself as being taken from the album 'Pe'ahi' which on closer inspection appears set for release on July 21st. Unless we've missed the press release, this comes as a bit of a surprise. So fans can rejoice in the fact that it's not just one new song, there are a further nine just days away. So what about 'Sisters' itself? Well, it has the usual traits of the band: lots of noisy guitar, the fingerprints of '50s and early '60s pop and rock 'n' roll, plus breaks for glistening melodic sections. What's of most note is just how good this track is. It's been said that The Raveonettes' songs often sound similar, and this is true to a point, but here they've added a few extra dimensions which mean that even though the hallmarks are all in place, this tune really soars in places, whereas in others it roars with the fire of blistering guitar; all of which is beautifully offset by those mellow, almost musicbox-like moments, plus their trademark boy/girl harmonies. To say it's good to have them back is an understatement: they return with a vengeance.
