Farao reveals new single 'Marry Me' with accompanying video ahead of upcoming album release.
Berlin-based, Norweigan musician Farao recently shared a new single 'Marry Me' taken from her forthcoming new album Pure-O which is out October 19th via Western Vinyl. Taking influence from Soviet Disco and 90's RnB the track is accompanied by a striking video shot in and around Berlin featuring Farao, aka, Kari Jahnsen performing a dance routine with a troupe of other dancers.
Jahnsen had this to say of the upcoming LP “My choices for instrumentation and arrangement on the record were inspired by my falling in love with old Soviet disco (Eduard Artemyev, Zigmars Liepiņš, Aleksei Kozlov) and subsequent collecting of boutique, Soviet-era analog synthesizers. A reawakening of my love for sensual ‘90s R&B (TLC, Janet Jackson), the spiritual harp playing of Alice Coltrane, and the minimal compositions of Terry Riley have all inspired the album,” she explains, “A danceable contrast between the industrial framework of the beats and synths, and the organic vitality and flow of the vocals and zither are what provide the sonic bed.” Sounds good to us!
