Ra Ra Riot | Boy EP

Ra Ra Riot has recently released a three track EP entitled Boy. If you don’t know about Ra Ra Riot, it is a New York based band and is expected to release their second full length album The Orchard later this year after releasing The Rhumb Line back in 08’. The band’s lyrics, sung by Wes Miles, speak volumes and are accompanied very naturally by violin and cello. Their debut album The Rhumb Line is populated with tracks executed with ease though the skill involved in performing them may be greater than the seeming simplicity that each song may let on. The Boy EP may only have three tracks but gives us a glimpse of what’s to come. The highlight of the EP is Keep It Quiet (Bear), which is set to the background crackling of a fire and an accordion put to Miles vocal contribution. Very simply, very beautiful.
