“Now Is The Time Of Emotion” music video

April 12, 2016 11:51 am

Prince Rama just shared their latest music video for "Now Is The Time Of Emotion," taken from their new album Xtreme Now. Check it out via The Fader. Video directed by Matt Hoffman and Taraka Larson.

“We basically wanted to make a video where we could do all the taboo things we've always wanted to do in a museum but are never allowed to. So we broke into a modern art museum and incited gangs of skateboarders, motorcyclists, fencers, small children, and crazed-townspeople to ransack its contents, destroying the artwork in bizarrely surreal manners…” -- Taraka Larson

Prince Rama’s “Xtreme Now” out today!

March 4, 2016 10:31 am

"...the new songs take on a more powerful, confident, fierce, infectious, all-encompassing, and accessible dance-club feeling than any other Prince Rama record - a fearless, visionary pop tour de force for the ghost-modern era that celebrates the ephemerality of life, dancing just at the edge of death's gilded smile."

Xtreme Now if officially out today! You can pick up your copy in the Carpark shop, iTunes, or in a record store near you. The album is also streaming via Spotify and Apple Music. Stop by select retail stores and receive a limited edition Xtreme Now temporary tattoos, while supplies last.

Stream Prince Rama’s album “Xtreme Now”

February 26, 2016 11:12 am

Excited for the new Prince Rama album? You can stream Xtreme Now in its entirety a week early over at Stereogum. "From the jangly strings and almost gentle falsetto vocals in 'Slip into Nevermore' to the orchestral elements and gospel backup vocals of 'Your Life In The End,' each song is distinct and imaginative while maintaining its cohesiveness." There's still time to pre-order the record on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

++ check out the extreme video that goes along with the premiere. Featuring pro skier, Andrew Hays, blasting the record on his way down the summit of a mountain in Squaw Valley, CA, documenting it all with GoPros.
