It’s just a little over a month before Ra Ra Riot drop their third LP, Beta Love. We heard its title track in November, a pop morsel that proved the band’s newfound synth pop path. Continuing in that direction is their latest offering “When I Dream”. Though still built atop electronic elements, it’s not as bubbly as the aforementioned song — this time the airy bounce is replaced by a simmering slice of soul. While the New York four-piece have adopted a new sound, the two songs they’ve released so far show promise in that, whatever route they take, the music is always quality material.
