Persian Gulf Club (PGC) Presents:
Ahead of the release of a new double album, the ambitious Off White / Chroma Black due later this year, genre-bending Iranian-Canadian experimentalists King Raam will be performing their first Calgary show in nearly three years at Festival Hall on August 27.
Originally the solo project of singer songwriter Ramin Seyed Emami, King Raam now thrives as an expansive creative collaboration with core members Amir Alav (lead guitar, production) and Arman Paxad(bass, keys, production) – a band finally untethered, and if not unburdened, then perhaps capable of transcending burden. Merging various facets of electronic and guitar music, and singing in both English and their native Farsi, King Raam explore literal and figurative apocalypses, occasionally harvesting the pure hedonistic joy that only grows in scorched earth. Noise for the end times that is by turns inquisitive, romantic and seething.
Off White / Chroma Black will be the project’s first full-length album in five years, following 2017’s Until a Thousand and … and a string of one-off singles in the intervening years.
