Heavy touring and a lot of internet hype helped Ra Ra Riot explode onto the indie rock scene. The band formed in 2006 and quickly honed an innovative, youthful and spirited style. Now, the band is about to release its sophomore full-length, The Orchard, on August 24. The sextet boasts a grand sound thanks to exultant vocal harmonies and string arrangements provided by cellist Alexandra Lawn and violinist Rebecca Zeller.

Ra Ra Riot has a reputation for energetic live shows, and combined with its palatial walls of sound, the band puts on quite the spectacle. Click the link above to listen to its entire Live Fridays concert, recorded at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia.
