Berlin via Norway's Farao shares glistening pop single "Marry Me", taken from her forthcoming second album Pure-O.
The new track arrives with accompanying visuals directed by, Irrum, and sees Kari Jahnsen, aka Farao, partake in synchronised dance routines in obscure locations.
Speaking about the new track, Jahnsen explains, "'Marry Me" is about the neurotic impulse to want to possess a person through the institution of marriage, ultimately trying to escape yourself by attaching to others.”
Taken from her forthcoming second album Pure-O, Farao explains her influences in more detail, "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.”
Farao describes her upcoming record with an impressive, and emotive list, "overwhelming, undying, overpowering, unconditional, all-encompassing, heart-enriching, mind-expanding.”
Pure-O will follow on from 2015's Till It's All Forgotten.
