Ra Ra Riot emerged in the great indie rush of the late 2000s alongside other pop-leaning rockers like Vampire Weekend, Passion Pit and Local Natives. They have close ties to Vampire Weekend, in particular: Ra Ra Riot's 2015 earworm "Water," from 2016's Need Your Light, is a collaboration with former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij. The band also recently released a new single, "This Time of Year," which is the first from an album due out sometime next year. Ra Ra Riot stopped by the Paste Studio on Tuesday, Dec. 4, to play that tune, a slightly stripped-down version of "Water" and "Backroads," a yet-to-be released song that will also appear on the new record.
