Berlin by-way-of Norway multi-instrumentalist and producer Farao (Kari Jahnsen) will be releasing her new album "Pure-O" on October 19th, 2018 via Western Vinyl and Su Tissue Records.
The album’s first single “Lula Loves You” follows the May release of critically acclaimed song "The Ghost Ship" – praised by Pitchfork, The New York Times, Stereogum, and others.
Pure-O, Farao’s sophomore album, is a prog-pop exposition on the curious dichotomy between beauty and destructiveness in sex and relationships, observing “How so often the thing that sparks our passions is the constant need to hide from one to find the other.” The musician notes, “I've felt like that. Like an addict seeking a fix.” Throughout 10 original tracks, Soviet-made synth tones ripple out from an undefined center like a Frank Stella painting.
“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,” Jahnsen explains, adding, “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.”
