Ella Riot calls it “Dancethink Music.” Some might call it high-brow guilty-pleasure dance music.


At the end of the day, it’s hard to find a genre to apply to a band of music degrees shamelessly enamored with catchy hooks, who sing through a giant megaphone in French, shred Van Halen on electrified Irish bagpipes, write 80′s tribute dance-rock anthems in 5/4, and re-sample themselves doing it live — all to create a modern-day musical Frankenstein that will pull even the most self-conscious listener on to the dance floor.


Formerly named My Dear Disco, the band is continuing a musical metamorphosis that ultimately resulted in its new name. Ella Riot symbolizes not only the “Dancethink” sensibility cultivated with their fans over the past three years, but also the full-out explosion of expression, sound and movement their live shows are widely known to generate.
