Farao announces new album, Pure-O

By | Published on Wednesday 1 August 2018

Farao has announced that she will release her new album, ‘Pure-O’, on 19 Oct. That album announcement is joined by the release of new single ‘Lula Loves You’, which she says is loosely based on David Lynch movie ‘Wild At Heart’. It is, she goes on, “about resilience in the face of adversity – fighting for something in less than ideal conditions”.

As for the overall sound of the new album, she explains: “My choices for instrumentation and arrangement on the record were inspired by my falling in love with old Soviet disco – Eduard Artemyev, Zigmars Liepi??, Aleksei Kozlov – and subsequent collecting of boutique, Soviet-era analogue synthesisers”.

Additionally, she adds, 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. A danceable contrast between the industrial framework of the beats and synths, and the organic vitality and flow of the vocals and zither, are what provide the sonic bed”.

You can see Farao live at the Sebright Arms in London on 17 Oct.¬†And you can watch the video for ‘Lula Loves You’ here:
