This one crept up on me a bit like Snowden’s ‘Anti-Anti’ of last year. Despite several listens I wasn’t that enthused but returning to it a few months later did reveal what a bouncy piece of songwriting it is. The six-piece from Syracuse have only been together for about a year. Two of their members have a classical background, which means that violin and cello strings often strain in and out of their music. ‘Each Year’ is the opening track from their self-titled debut and is very pleasant (and inoffensive, in a nice way). Most of the pleasure comes from the bubbly rhythms that give the song a youthful verve. Ra Ra Riot have played on both sides of the water in recent months with Cloud Cult, Tokyo Police Club and Snowden (aha). KD
