Farao #2 - Skin


When I last mentioned Kari Jahnsen just after Christmas it was with "Forces", a track which introduced her new nom de plume Farao and to mention a forthcoming trip to Iceland to record her debut single, the results of which have now been shared with us lucky folk...

"Skin", due for digital only release on May 27th, highlights a more adventurousness tone than Kari's previous work with Like Spinning where an intricate web of luxurious, sprawling instrumentation and honey-sweet harmonies combine to majestic results. Rich and fresh-sounding "Skin" sets the tone for Farao, whose pristine voice and genuinely heart-felt song-craft is sure wrap itself around many a listener, atmospheric, well-crafted and beautiful.

Farao have a spate of dates coming up, on tour with Paper Aeroplanes, at The Great Escape and finally (for now at least) a debut headlining show at The Sebright Arms on May 29th - details.

Update 10th April - I've added a possibly an even more beautiful live version of the track recorded for TLOBF, spine-tinglingly good.
