Prince Rama

Prince Rama's new album, Xtreme Now (out 3/4 via Carpark), is a lot of fun, ranging from fizzy dancepop, to punky rockers, to swaying arms anthems. All of it's got Prince Rama's pixie dust on it (it might just be glitter). The latest song to be shared from it is "Slip Into Nevermore," which sounds like something from an '80s fantasy film where flowing-haired maidens ride horseback, racing across a rocky coastline against the sounds of breathlessly strummed acoustic guitars, tom-heavy percussion, sweeping synth strings, and "huh! hah!" accents. (Your interpretation may be different.) You can stream "Slip Into Nevermore" below.

The band play an Xtreme Now release show at Brooklyn's Baby's All Right on March 4. PC Worship are also on the bill and tickets are still available. They'll then be on tour all over North America through April. All dates are listed below.
