Ra Ra Riot
released their latest album, Need Your Light,
one year ago this week and to celebrate, they're putting out an excellent remix of their single "Bad Times" by Brazil-based producer Cesare.
The original song
, even though the main line is "I was having some bad times,"
is sonically feel-good. It contains some synths but mainly sticks to real drums and fun rhythmic guitars. The remix replaces every instrument with electronics and is completely different but still keeps the band's quirky personality at the forefront, with Wes Miles' scream used as a sample and an overall euphoric feeling. The song was already pleasant, but now with a fresh little makeover, we can dance to it forever.
