Syracuse-based Ra Ra Riot have been itching for their big breakout, and while they have had their moments -- “Dying Is Fine” off of The Rhumb Line and “Boy” off of The Orchard -- they have been overshadowed by bigger acts in the past. The way things are panning out it looks like 13 could be the band's lucky number, as their third album Beta Love is set to release on January 22 via Barsuk. Since the release of their last album, The Orchard, the band has taken on a synth-heavy sound, due to the loss of the bands cellist within the last year.
The group has already released two solid pop tracks off of their upcoming album and their third release, the new single “Dance With Me”, doesn’t disappoint. The song does exactly what it refers to, create a listening environment where the reggae inspired guitars, rocking bass line and solid drum beat dance around within your head. Now do yourself a favor, bust out your favorite pair of dance shoes and fall victim to Ra Ra Riot’s infectious beat. While you are at it, check out their previous single off of Beta Love, "When I Dream", below as it takes on a completely different feel.
