First full length album coming from Ra Ra Riot since the release of The Orchard about 2.5 years ago, and the departure of their cellist. This album sounds pretty damn good, although it’s definitely a change from their earlier, organized rock type of sound to a more of synthpop. It’s actually kinda interesting to listen to, and some of the songs just kind of blend in with others because unfortunately, the synths don’t distinguish every single song from one another. A couple solid ones on this album though, that comes out January 22nd, especially “Dance With Me”, the first song on the album. Definitely an upbeat song, with a damn catchy chorus. Give it a listen here and you can just go through the playlist (note, the playlist may be taken down soon, and if it is, I will replace it).
