Debut Album Till It’s All Forgotten Streaming
With The New York Times All Week
“On her debut album, “Till It’s All Forgotten,” out Sept. 11 via Arts & Crafts, Farao heavily relies on skittering drum parts and builds strange, immersive grooves that place acoustic and electronic textures side by side. It’s something like a more serene, but no less inventive sister to Tune-Yards.”

Hailing from the 500-person mountain valley village of Ulnes, Norwegian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Farao (aka Kari Jahnsen) is thrilled to share the full album stream of her debut full-length Till It’s All Forgotten today with The New York Times. Released next Friday, September 11th via Arts & Crafts (US) and Full Time Hobby (UK/EU) the album shimmers with depth of determination and sorrow, touching upon experimental pop, R&B, and haunting brass melodies. Till It’s All Forgotten arrives with the conviction of a threat, and the grace of vengeance.
Farao’s vast and powerful army of tools – guitars, synths, organs, glockenspiel, sitar – dance at her fingertips, expertly interwoven with her ethereal vocals to create a suite of music that is otherworldly and entirely her own. With international accolades, Farao will take her captivating live performance to the US as lead support for The Cribs on a national fall tour.
Produced by Mike Lindsay (Tunng) and mixed by Grammy Award winner Andrew Scheps (Hozier, Lana Del Rey, Cass McCombs), Till It’s All Forgotten album seamlessly blending transitive indie rock with starry electronics, Farao creates intricate, enchanting music that reflects the dramatic yet serene environments of her origin.
