Published Nov 30, 2010Earlier this year, Ra Ra Riot released The Orchard, which included the cheery, falsetto-laden "Too Dramatic." Now, that track has received the remix treatment courtesy of Most Serene Republic pianist Ryan Lenssen.
Lenssen strips away the guitars and drums, replacing them with piano and reverb-y ambience. This serves to draw out the song's R&B influences, placing the full emphasis on singer Wes Miles' gasping coos.
