As Prince Rama, sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson play psychedelic rock with an unpretentious art-school vibe. Having grown up in a Hare Krishna community, they weave Sanskrit chants between moody melodies sung in English. Trust Now’s deep percussion and wind-chime synthesizers would fit in just as well at a temple sanctum as at a summer music festival. Like Dead Can Dance before them, Prince Rama transcend both creed and genre—spiritually tinted music for today’s PBR-swilling hipsters.
