Like a lot of independent bands from New York, Vampire Weekend’s band bestfriends Ra Ra Riot make indie rock that’s more baroque than pop – thanks to their use of orchestral strings. Perhaps feeling trapped being known as that indie rock band with heavy use of cello and violin, Ra Ra Riot’s third album Beta Love is a lush, synthy dive into the world of electropop. It’s almost a realisation of Peter Silberman’s remix of the band – a musical transmogrification of their sophomore The Orchard into glitchy bleeps and bloops. The last quarter of Upfront gigs will be kicked off by the quartet’s new musical direction.
