Prince Rama teamed up with Pitchfork & GoPro to create a wacky fitness video for their track “Bahia.”
View the it here via PitchforkTV.

“On January 27, 2016 Brooklyn based band Prince Rama performed the track “Bahia” from their upcoming album Xtreme Now at Otom Gym in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Directed and edited by Jim Larson, the video showcases the band’s energetic live show while contortionist Amazing Amy and a group of Xtreme health nuts get ripped. Using GoPros on zip lines, gimbals, mic mounts and chest mounts Larson’s goal was to capture the performance from the perspective of someone getting in a good sweat while Prince Rama play live.”

See the duo live next month!

Prince Rama release second single + announce tour

January 11, 2016 12:26 pm

“‘Now Is The Time of Emotion’ has the feel of ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ meets Devo under the bleachers in the high school gymnasium, with searing electric guitars that make it feel like the entire pep rally has caught fire, rapidly exploding into the ultimate teenage sexual catharsis while alien cheerleaders continue to chime the infectious chorus hook well into the afterlife.”

Check out Prince Rama’s new “lazer-laden” single, “Now Is The Time of Emotion,” via Noisey. The track is taken from their forthcoming album Xtreme Now, out March 4th. Pre-order the album today on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

Prince Rama announces Xtreme Now + releases first single

December 8, 2015 11:45 am

Please welcome Prince Rama to Carpark Records! The Larson sisters have been a part of the family for a good while, releasing three full-length albums on our sister label Paw Tracks. Prince Rama’s first release for Carpark is Xtreme Now, out March 4, 2016. Stream the first single from the album, “Bahia,” via Interview.

Pre-orders are now available on the Carpark shop & iTunes. An instant download of “Bahia” is available when you pre-order the record. The first 40 physical orders will receive a Prince Rama temporary tattoo.

Their 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.

Catch Prince Rama live:
December 19th – Days For Night – Houston, TX
March 4th – Baby’s All Right – Brooklyn, NY – **Record Release Show**
