RA is a band from Malmö, Sweden. It is Simon Minó, Erik Blondell, Felix Mårtensson and Martin Nilsson. Their music sounds dark and noisy with a lot of influence from punk and post-punk. The band was formed back in 2012 and during their time together RA has released the four-track EP Bloodline, a single, a remix album and their full length debut Scandinavia.
December 2nd 2016 RA is going to release their new EP Then I Woke Up in Paradise. It's a collaborate release between their main label in Sweden, Adrian Recordings, Third Coming Records in France and Premium Abundance in Denmark.
Then I Woke Up in Paradise is the first release since the debut album Scandinavia. The band has moved forward and is now working within a new soundscape. This is a gloomy, slow, melodic place presenting electronic elements into the RA universe; it's intense and at times romantic. With Simon Mino getting company behind the microphone from more of the band members this EP serves a maturity and contemplation to the RA sound and shows the listener that they have more. It's the band that never rests. Then I Woke Up in Paradise has producer Joakim Lindberg behind the buttons, as he has been on all RA's material up to date.
RA is being booked in Denmark by Premium Abundance
