Ra Ra Riot float on in their "Binary Mind" video.
Ra Ra Riot's Beta Love is an electro-powered chronicle of android emotions, so it's no wonder the band's "Binary Mind" video gets a little sci-fi. It turns out androids dream of a whole lot more than electric sheep: The animated video is a candy-colored psychedelic epic that features the band's floating heads, the moon playing bass and singer Wes Miles going blue-haired and crying clouds of eyeball beasts. Seapunk! Don't watch this on drugs, kids. (Don't do drugs!)

Ra Ra Riot get surreal (and chased by skeletons) in their "Dance With Me" video.
We've been having this recurring nightmare where we're being chased by a group of skeletons through a desolate city, and then end up in a nightclub fighting for our lives against the forces of evil and herky-jerky dancing (not sure which is scarier). Strangely, it seems like New York-based indie rockers Ra Ra Riot have been having the same dream, as it's VERY similar to their latest clip for "Dance With Me." (Note to self: Look into the idea of copyrighting our subconscious for future music video branding opportunities.) Like other songs on the group's recently released third album, Beta Love, the influences in the clip seem pulled from a cyberpunk dystopian future. (There's a lot of that going around lately).
