Norwegian singer songwriter Farao first appeared in January with a free download of haunting track ‘Forces’. Her fragile and otherworldly tone instantly resonated with anyone that heard it.

Farao headed to Reykjavik in February to record with Mike Lindsay from experimental folk group Tunng. ‘Skin’ is the first track from this batch of recordings that is set for release as a digital-only single on May 27th. There is an un-nerving intensity to this track with a foreground drum beat and icy sharp vocals that tell the tale of extra marital affair. Farao played all instrumentation on the track barring percussion. The release will include a remix from Manchester’s Ghosting Season.

Her first UK headline show will take place on May 29th at Sebright Arms, in association with Communion.
