Ra Ra Riot – Beta Love

  • February 25, 2013

Syracuse, New York band Ra Ra Riot are out with Beta Love, the follow-up to 2008’s The Rhumb Line and 2010’s The Orchard. Now playing as a four-piece, comprised of Wes Miles (vocals), Milo Bonacci (guitar), Mathieu Santos (bass) and Rebecca Zeller (violin), the indie rockers experiment with 80’s synth and bolder sounds, creating infectiously upbeat pop filled with enchanting strings. Production is slick, with a lovely pop sheen courtesy of Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, Wavves) at Sweet Tea Studios in Oxford, MS. Fans and pop enthusiasts will enjoy standouts such as “For Once”, “When I Dream” and “Angel, Please.” – Written by SMarx
