Prince Rama Throw a Populist Dance Party in ‘So Destroyed’ Video

prince rama, so destroyed, fan dance video

As Jessica Hopper explained in her review for Prince Rama’s 2011 LP Trust Now, the Brooklyn-based psych-rock duo represent “the real sound of witch house, which is to say they sound like serious witches — impossibly high, fluttery voices singing mystic incantations over pulsing, six-minute jams that gun for another astral plane.” They not only reach that hypnotic high with new song “So Destroyed,” but cast their spell over a handful of fans who contribute their own trippy dance moves to the corresponding video. Member Nimai Larson edited together the clip using common folks’ submissions, and the results are as varying in style and ability as one might expect. One woman dances with her cat. Another does cartwheels on the side wall of her room (see it to believe), other folks boogie on a rooftop, and one guy struts across a bar-top. Also, we’re pretty sure there’s indisputable evidence of alien life up there as well. The orgiastic cut hails from the pair’s recent Top Ten Hits of the End of the World LP for Paw Tracks. Accordingly, the Larson sisters appeared in SPIN’s “Centipedia.”
