International Tour Includes UK Dates w/ San Fermin
Farao is pleased to reveal the official video for “Warriors”, taken from her debut LP Till It’s All Forgotten. London based visual artist and director Irrum described the video-making process to Dummy Mag: “Kari told me she thought it was interesting if we represented the themes of the song, a choice, a gamble, giving up on something – with something simple and relatable, we decided on a game. The video puts us in a graphical game scenario, the format has some similarities to that of a classic tv gameshow but we left the rules and context surrounding it pretty undefined.”
Farao is the musical alter ego of adventurous pop songbird & multi-instrumentalist Kari Jahnsen. Jahnsen composed and performed all instruments (except brass and drums) on Till It’s All Forgotten’s ten songs. Shimmering with depths of determination and sorrow, the album combines celestial pop, R&B and haunting brass melodies.
Farao’s varied and evocative musical artillery – guitars, synths, organs, glockenspiel, sitar – dances at her fingertips, dazzlingly interwoven with her ethereal vocals to create a suite of music that is otherworldly and entirely her own. First single “Hunter” shimmers with starry electronics churning against an inexorable underbelly of rhythm. The brooding “Bodies”, thunders over rugged terrain, its knotted path smoothed by Farao’s angelic, but stoic, voice.
Produced by Mike Lindsay (of Tunng) and mixed by Grammy Award winner Andrew Scheps (Hozier, Lana Del Rey, Cass McCombs), Farao’s sublime debut is a unique composite of sonic elements perfectly reflecting and enlarging upon its emotional themes and dramatic range.
Farao’s debut album Till It’s All Forgotten is available now from Full Time Hobby in the UK and Europe and Arts and Crafts in North America.
