Published May 03, 2016Earlier this year, Prince Rama gave their fans an "adrenaline high" in the form of their eighth studio album Xtreme Now. Inspired by the intensity of extreme sports, it found the band discovering just how dynamic their sound can get. We decided to capture some of that energy by filming their recent appearance at Toronto venue The Garrison, where the dance pop trio brought their retro-psychedelic tunes to life.
In the first clip below, Rama serve up a medley of two tracks, "Those Who Love Will Live Forever / Your Life In The End." In the same Mona Lisa leggings found on the album cover, singer Taraka Larson crouches down to get up close and personal with the audience as her vocals weave in between the synth instrumentals and her dramatic movements mimic the winding journey of the song. In the other clip, the band offer the audience a different experience with "Shitopia," for which the band switch into matching white robes, going for a more organic sound.
Experience the different directions Rama take their futuristic sound in below for our latest instalment of Exclaim! TV.
