rarariot betacover New Music: Ra Ra Riot   Beta Love

Though they may have been downgraded to a four-piece, Syracuse-bred indie-poppers Ra Ra Riot haven’t lost a musical step, as evidenced by the title track from their forthcoming third album, Beta Love. If anything, the band is now reaching for new musical heights teased on 2010′s The Orchard, with ultra-falsetto vocals and layers of bubbly synth forging a dance-pop anthem overflowing with a sense of wild abandonment. Stream it below.

Beta Love hits stores on January 22nd via Barsuk Records. Consult the album tracklist and the band’s tour schedule below.
