3144 portraits by Oscar-nominated filmmakers Karl Erik Brшndbo and Hallvar Witzш make up the music movie for Farao’s “The Hours”. Layering crunchy, silky and metallic textures under her falsetto vocal stylings, the Russian disco inspired musician leads us in a journey throughout the picturesque landscapes of England, Iceland and Norway as each picture very nearly precisely replicates the past. A look into the hours wasted, as her lyrics denote in the distance traveled and the stagnation endured, she offers the viewers.
Amongst other items, it’s this that received us to her. This woman is simply as advertised: a female by having a witty love of life and a powerful feeling of individuality. She plays with level and absurdity in a nuanced feeling that is very nearly, and rightly therefore, selfish in its eccentricity. Please love this particular meeting.

3. You spent my youth in Norway, where in actuality the language that is primary in Norwegian. You choose to write lyrics in English so I am curious as to why do? And just how has that affected your listenership?
Farao: It’s a real solution to distance myself from my words. We believe it is awkward performing lyrics that are way too individual in Norwegian thus I hide behind the English language.Continue reading
