Formed ten years ago out of Syracuse University, Ra Ra Riot is now on its fourth studio release, titled Need Your Light, which dropped February 19. The album is a departure from the band’s early indie baroque pop sound and instead is more synth-driven and dance-friendly.
In celebration of the new effort, Ra Ra Riot performed a stripped-down SiriusXMU Session, showcasing the band’s new songs.
You can hear it in full on SiriusXMU Thursday, 3/3 at 3 am and 4 pm ET; Friday, 3/4 at 9 am ET; and Sunday 3/6 at 12 pm ET. It is also available now On Demand.
In the meantime, check out Wes Miles’ piano-assisted performance of the lead single, Water.
