Every time I listen to 1,2,3, they sound better than the last. When Ra Ra Riot had to reschedule their concert at Carnegie Library Concert Hall in December, the Pittsburgh group replaced Delicate Steve as Ra Ra Riot’s opener. 1,2,3’s loud and intriguing sound captivated the audience, and I found myself puzzled by their sound in a positive way. With high pitched, raspy vocals and penetrating percussion, 1,2,3’s style hooks the listener to their music.
Their debut album, New Heaven, came out last year and you can pick it up online or on vinyl. They’re currently on a mini tour of random dates and locations (best kept track of via their Twitter) or you can follow along with the band via their website and Facebook.
