Ra Ra Riot release single “Absolutely”

Ra Ra Riot share their new single "Absolutely"

Ra Ra Riot has released “Absolutely”, the track comes off their upcoming release, Need Your Light, out February 19th via Arts & Crafts/Barsuk Records.

Ra Ra Riot previously released the single “Water”, a collaboration with Vampire Weekend’s Rostam that continues to capture the attention of fans and media alike. The video for “Water” was conceived by Rostam, who co-directed it with Josh Goleman (Alabama Shakes, Skrillex, Gary Clark Jr).

Need Your Light was primarily produced by Ryan Hadlock (Vance Joy, Blonde Redhead) with two tracks, “I Need Your Light” and “Water,” produced by Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX, Carly Rae Jepsen). It is the fourth full-length from Brooklyn’s Ra Ra Riot and sees the band — Wes Miles (vocals), Mathieu Santos (bass), Milo Bonacci (guitar), Rebecca Zeller (violin), and Kenny Bernard(drums) — getting back to their house party roots without abandoning the more heady soundscapes they explored with 2013’s Beta Love.

Ra Ra Riot’s first tour in support of Need Your Light kicks off on March 2 in Albany.
