The Raveonettes Premiere A Dark Bit of Sonic Strangeness for the Batman: Arkham City Soundtrack

We already know that the soundtrack for Batman: Arkham City looks promising. It'll feature original tracks from a ton of bands, including Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, The Boxer Rebellion, Serj Tankian, and The Raveonettes. All of the groups seem to have put a lot of work into providing quality cuts.

The track from the Danish electro duo The Raveonettes is now streaming online. Titled "Oh, Stranger," it's a suitably dark, gothic bit of electro, a dramatic build to a pusling beat, all layered guitars and stadium-sized reverb. Dare I say that it sounds a little bit... Batman-y? The Arkham City video montages practically direct and edit themselves.

Give it a listen for yourself:

The Arkham City soundtrack goes on sale on October 4th, two weeks before the game comes out on October 18th.
