Listen: Farao – Go With The Flow (Queens of the Stone Age Cover/Best Fit Premiere)

02 July 2013, 11:45 | Written by Paul Bridgewater

Norway’s Kari Jahnsen – who makes music under the Farao moniker – remains one of the most intriguingly talented new artists of 2013.

With a slow drip of tracks hitting the web since the beginning of the year, 21-year old London-based Jahnsen has eked out a vocal space that sits firmly between an organic melancholy and sultry purr; that uniquely lilting Scandinavian take on English helps a lot too.

Raised on a musical diet that included the likes of Radiohead and Foo Fighters, it comes as no great surprise that Jahnsen has chosen to tackle a track from Grohl associates Queens of the Stone Age. Her slow take on the 2002 track ‘Go With the Flow’ – from Songs for the Deaf – finds that the inherant sadness of that song and brings out a tragic beauty in the lyric’s depiction of emotional turmoil and self-destruction.

Jahnsen plays a few select shows and festival appearance throughout July, including Lock Tavern (4 July), Camden Lock LIve (12 July), Tramlines Festival (18 July) and the Secret Garden Party (28 July).
