Kicks off 'Beta Love' LP, out Jan. 22
Ra Ra Riot have been doling out samples of their upcoming third album, Beta Love (due January 22 from Barsuk), for the past few months. First came the LP's electro-poppy title track; followed by several new songs during the foursome's week-long residency at their alma mater, New York's Syracuse University; and then bummer bumper "When I Dream." Add to that pile "Dance With Me," the pink-lit opener to The Orchard's follow-up.
Singer Wes Miles doesn't waste any time with this two-and-a-half minute rebound piece, immediately wailing in his Beta Love pouty face: "Oh, I mostly feel I had a good day / It wasn't that great." Cue a Passion Pit-like groove, confetti synths, and Miles' delirious, falsetto pleas to, "Come and dance with me pretty, sweet fool / I wanna be your toy." Stream it below (via Stereogum).
