Up-and-coming punk duo, Raue have released their new EP, KARMA!!, available now on all streaming services. Featuring two brand new tracks, the EP pulls inspiration from the 90s grunge scene; the band’s sound often draws comparisons to bands like the Pixies, Sonic Youth, Garbage, and Hole. Listen to the album and watch the new music video for “Karma” now below.
“It’s two in the morning; you pick up an acoustic guitar and open up the voice memos app on your phone. Karma was a late-night catharsis that, like most, was almost completely overlooked,” the band shares of the EP’s title track. “It developed past the innocence of just a lick into a story patiently awaiting its turn. Subconsciously, the melody paved the direction of what is now defined in words. Lyrics came last.”
They continue, “Most music serves the purpose of lifting some kind of weight off shoulders, moving energy through; it’s a friend you can trust with any unspoken word.
I want ‘Karma’ to be impactful and meaningful in a way that is unique to you; I don’t want to influence your relationships with these songs. This art is yours.”
KARMA!! Is being released in partnership with iconic skate, surf, snow brand Volcom. The music video for the EP’s title track “Karma” was shot on location at Volcom’s skate park and can be watched here. Raue and Volcom are also making a crowd sourced video for “Ruby Glow”.
