Mandy Rain - "Riot" Single

If you're looking for a song to dance to, a song to unite to, a song to get crazy to - take a listen to pop artist, Mandy Rain.  Her single "Riot" dropped in February, and it's a pop dance sound that will get you dancing to the beat.

One of my favorite parts of the song is the interesting chord degression (if you will) with the lyrics:

"Why don't you move it like you stole it,
Take it like you own it,
Touch it if you want it."

The way the music and the melody descends in half steps with the music breaking down in the background sounds really good together.

Mandy's got herself a solid set of pipes, but I feel like she could have showcased it more in this song.  There were moments - especially in the bridge - where I felt like her vocals could have soared and pushed the song into its own riot-like break down but they didn't quite make it for me.  Regardless though, the girl is talented and I can't wait to hear more from her!

"Riot" is available on iTunes.
