Published Feb 21, 2011We've already heard Ra Ra Riot's "Too Dramatic" as remixed by Ryan Lenssen of Most Serene Republic. Now, the Syracuse, NY-based baroque rockers have released a video for the upbeat, string-laden cut from last year's The Orchard.
The clip shows singer Wes Miles wearing an extremely comfortable-looking sweater, flanked by his bandmates and singing in a soaring falsetto. It starts off as a straightforward performance clip, but around the one-minute mark, clouds began racing overhead and claymation mountains sprout up all around them. It ends with an explosion of surreal colours as the camera swirls around the band on top of a mountain range. Dramatic indeed.
