Although things for Ra Ra Riot have been quiet so far in 2011, it was hard to believe they wouldn’t break the silence. The group recently unveiled a remix by The Kids Are Radioactive for their latest single, “Too Dramatic”, which you can hear exclusively below. The news comes in the midst of the current leg of the five piece’s tour in support of The Orchard.
The remix is a techno-trance track that keeps the vocals mostly intact, replacing the string-laden Ra Ra Riot sound with groovy keyboards and background bleeps. It’s all capped off with a fuzzed-out version of Wes Miles’ singing in the chorus. At the very least, this remix deserves to make some appearance in the Brooklyn club scene/your favorite PBR serving bar.
Ra Ra Riot are currently on a month-long break from their North American tour, which will resume in Baltimore on March 3rd. Both the tour dates and the remix can be found below.
