Amoeba Review

02/18/2016

After helping to resuscitate the baroque pop-like sound of late '60s Beach Boys, Ra Ra Riot returns with a poppier, more electronic album that seems like it's destined for radio popularity. Their unique indie sound gets glossier as they smooth over the simplicity of their previous albums and go for a full-blown production with power anthems, sugary sweet singles, and catchy riffs. Having previously dabbled in an '80s synth pop sound that could've come right out of a Michael Mann movie, they discard luscious string parts for walls of electronic atmosphere and strings that feel more disco than chamber music. They take Beta Love's pop spirit and expand on it until it explodes with pure joy. Produced by former Vampire Weekend member, Rostam Batmanglij, Need Your Light feels like the perfect pop jam to play as spring blooms.
