FARAO WILL RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE 'SKIN' ON MAY 27TH

FARAO TO RELEASE DEBUT SINGLE ‘SKIN’ ON MAY 27TH

LIVE DATES ALSO ANNOUNCED INCLUDING A HEADLINE SHOW AT THE SEBRIGHT ARMS ON MAY 29TH AND PERFORMANCES AT THE GREAT ESCAPE AND SECRET GARDEN PARTY.

“A beautiful record” – Lauren Laverne

“Fingerpicked guitar and hushed, shuffling drums drive the song along whilst Farao’s sweet honey toned vocals brings the bittersweet melancholy.” – Line of Best Fit

Norwegian singer songwriter Farao first appeared in January with a free download of haunting track ‘Forces’. Her fragile and otherworldly tone instantly connected with the media, picking up tastemaker support from The Line Of Best and radio support from Lauren Laverne.

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. The song sets a tale of extra marital affair, on which Farao played all instrumentation on the track barring percussion.  The release will include a remix from Manchester’s Ghosting Season.

There’s a busy touring schedule ahead, including appearances at this year’s The Great Escape and Secret Garden Party festivals, as well as tour dates across UK/EU with Karl Hyde (Underworld), Moddi and Paper Aeroplanes. Her first UK headline show will take place on May 29th at Sebright Arms, in association with Communion.
