Melbourne’s own alt-rap rejuvenators RaRa have made a name for themselves as the natural aural progression for those seeking something fresh and relatable after going through the life-changing Tribe / De La Soul discovery stage. The savvy four-peice sidestep the trap of imitating overused sonic trademarks made famous by ’90s alternative rap gods (like so many do). Instead, RaRa find their own way of keeping the ethos alive with forward-thinking production and intelligent songwriting. Their most recent output, concept EP Pink and Teal is the best example of this.

Here are four golden opportunities to catch RaRa live:

1. Monash Uni Party with Bluejuice, October 8
2. Wasted Youth Halloween Party, (SYD) October 31
3. Melbourne Music Week Safari: ZOO Block Party, Thursday November, 20
4. Paradise Music Festival, November 28–30

…and finally, here are the five tracks RaRa can’t stop rinsing right now:

1. Spaceghostpurrp – ‘Mystikal Maze’

2. Radiohead – ‘Reckoner’

3. Travi$ Scott – ‘Skyfall’ (feat. Young Thug)

4. Animal Collective – ‘Leaf House’

5. ƒriendships – ‘Ghost Hear’

Thank you RaRa. As a token of gratitude I am just going to leave this here…
