“‘The Ghost Ship’ is about losing a sense of direction, your fate being driven by something out of your control” explains Kari Jahnsen, aka Farao. With her floaty electronic sounds and magnetic beats, it’s easy to get lost in the multi-instrumentalist’s brand new track.
Farao – originally from Norway, now residing in Berlin – has recently signed to Western Vinyl after releasing her debut album Till It’s All Forgotten, in 2015. The record earned praise from the likes of Pitchfork, The FADER, NPR Music, Noisey, Vanity Fair, Paste, Clash, and The Line Of Best Fit. She’s currently working on a new album, with more details to be released soon.
Talking about her new single ‘The Ghost Ship’, Farao continues: “[it’s about] seeing the end of a relationship as an empty vessel, floating endlessly and eternally into nothingness.” Despite the sad context, the single is a hopeful, upbeat offering. Listen to the track below and follow Farao on Facebook for more updates.
