Shimmying the “brill” back into Brill Building pop is what makes The Raveonettes The Raveonettes. And so’s their “Last Dance” vid plays as an unbashed pastiche of love Beach Blanket-style: a Ray Ban-bedecked, romantically reckless young couple licks ice cream, cavorts along beaches, surfs a deux, and rides a motorcycle. Just business as youzh for the Danish duo, whose fourth full-length, In & Out of Control, dropped Tuesday.
But the super-cutest part has gotta be the singing crow (or “raven,” huh?) that coos the chorus starting at 0:52.
