Ra Ra Riot – “Beta Love”

By Michael Nelson / November 13, 2012 - 11:21 am

Brooklyn-via-Syracuse indie-poppers Ra Ra Riot are set to release their third album — and first since parting ways with cellist Alexandra Lawn — next year, and they’re building anticipation starting today with the release of the album’s first single/title track. “Beta Love” is a pure-pop confection, heavy on the frosting, all synth and falsetto and light bounce. Give it a listen.
