The third Ja Ja Ja club night for the season is set for 24 April, featuring Norway’s Farao performing alongside Suvi (FI) Sebastian Lind (DK).
Combining wistful melodies, keyboards that quietly fizz in the backdrop of Farao’s finger-picked guitar murmurs and lo-fi bumps and whistles, her songs are all infused with a wondrous Nordic iciness.
Farao’s debut EP was recorded in Iceland with Mike Lindsay from Brit experimenters Tunng /Cheek Mountain Thief, and Jahnsen found making the record amid the wintry scapes of Reykjavik an inspiring process. Jahnsen played almost all of the instruments across the four tracks here, carefully fashioning a gossamer bed of folk-pop sounds to lay her vocal ruminations on love, life and mortality on.
In 2013 Farao brought her unique sound to The Great Escape, Secret Garden Party and Reeperbahn festivals, as well as venues across Europe as tour support to the likes of Karl Hyde of Underworld fame, Moddi and Icelandic superstar-in-the-making Ásgeir
