While most bands spend their first year fighting over rehearsal schedules and playing shows for their parents, Ra Ra Riot managed to spread its sound at ludicrous speed. In less than one year, this group of overachievers has somehow melded six musical brains together to form one collective force hell-bent on making fans move in-time with every pluck, pound, strum and bow. The group’s spirited live shows will surely give it the staying power it needs to keep drawing fans—and maybe, just maybe, Ra Ra Riot’s sunny-side-up style will even be able to do the unthinkable and put Syracuse on the map for something other than snow. After the reactions Ra Ra Riot received from their SXSW performances last year, it seems certain… “Like Dexy's Midnight Runners playing R.E.M…their show in Texas was truly astonishing.” – NME “The six college aged kids create an enormous, hefty sound complete with a cello and violin, not unlike the Arcade Fire or the Olivia Tremor. Ra Ra Riot has enormous potential and considering the band is only a year old, the actualization is inevitable.” –VH1.com ‘Seven Bands From SXSW That Will Matter’ “Ra Ra Riot is one of the best young bands we've heard in a really long time” – Spin.com "There is a bit of Arcade Fire in them, but they are also indebted to "London Calling"-era Clash" - Billboard.com
