The NY altrockers, Ra Ra Riot, shared “Foreign Lovers” days before Valentine’s Day to remind you to gift all of your other mating partners abroad. The swift drums exhilarate the acoustic vocal loops before the gushing percussions chime in, giving frisky punches – the track moves in the same rapid pace, even during the faux-acoustic moments. It is the degree of vibrato that makes “Foreign Lovers” a variegated soundscape:

“Foreign Lovers” is from Ra Ra Riot’s upcoming album, Need Your Light, which will come out on February 19 (five-day countdown begins!). They will hit their North American tour two days later:
