Ra Ra Riot - "Beta Love" video

David Dean Burkhart, a fan of Ra Ra Riot, recently made his own video for “Beta Love,” the dance-poppy title track from the band’s new album, by editing together footage from a local 1980s Bay Area UHF show called Dance Party. The band liked his work enough to make it the official video, and I’m not surprised. Those fuzzy images work as a monument to the timeless spectacle of giddy teenage awkwardness. Watch it below.

Beta Love is out now on Barsuk.

  1. This Burkhart guy already did this same concept for Twin Shadow’s “Five Seconds” last year:

    His VHS shtick kinda runs dry after you look through his Vimeo and see he’s done this for a lot of the videos he’s put together. I’m surprised he didn’t cop my Hampton Beach karaoke “Into the Groove” clip off YouTube a few weeks back.

  2. I didn’t really like the rest of the album but this song is damn catchy. I can see it being used in movies for the next year or two.
