Ra Ra Riot
Ra Ra Riot are one of the most promising artists of indie today. Ever since their self-titled EP debut in the summer of 2007, the New Yorkers have delighted the ears with their catchy, danceable pop. The fact they’ve opened Tokyo Police Club, Vampire Weekend and Editors says it all. Now, after the acclaimed “ The Rhumb Line” (Barsuk/V2, 2008), they give us the first taster of “ Orchid”, their second album due out on 24th August, mixed by Chris Walla ( Death Cab For Cutie) and Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend). “ Boy”, as the track is called, is a solid, elegant indie pop song with orchestral arrangements.
