Ra Ra Riot – Water
I really like the song. I’m not took blown away by the video. I hope you enjoy!
From the album Need Your Light (2016).
Consequence of Sound Says:
Everyone, it seems, wants more from Wesley Miles. The singer of baroque-gone-synth pop band Ra Ra Riot, Miles seems to inspire a particular imagination from his collaborating producers. Ra Ra Riot has worked with Ryan Hadlock (who went on to produce the Lumineers), Andrew Maury of RAC, Dennis Herring (who produced Modest Mouse’s path to the mainstream), and on their most recent LP, Need Your Light, Rostam Batmanglij, formerly of Vampire Weekend. Each album represented a new attempt to square the circle of the band’s apparent potential and its equally apparent lack of delivery on it.
It begins, perhaps, with the gap between Ra Ra Riot’s live performances and recorded catalog. In 2006, the band’s live show evoked a vision of Arcade Fire 2.0: a better lead vocalist, more thrashing, and arrangements with an unmistakable and unrestrained id. Then came the band’s debut self-titled EP. Propulsive songs like “Dying Is Fine” sounded flat and listless. The EP presented itself as bizarrely empty — strange for a band priding itself on overflowing fullness. The group self-produced the debut EP, the last time they solely controlled the recording of their music.
