Farao shares video for "Hunter"

Farao revealed the video for her latest single “Hunter,” available now from Arts & Crafts (North America) & Full Time Hobby (UK / EU). Farao is the musical alter ego of London-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Kari Jahnsen.
Shot in Snowdonia in Wales, “Hunter” was directed by Berlin-based visual artist Irrum.   “We wanted to use the wild and majestic nature in Wales as a way of reinforcing the dramatic soundscape of the song, combined with unsettling elements like reptiles, naked bodies on the ground, blood and people staring at you,” Jahnsen says of the video, “The song is about conquering and oppression, and we wanted to reflect that by making a video that leaves the viewer feeling intimidated and hopefully a little anxious.”

The first single to follow her 2014 self-titled EP, “Hunter” shimmers with starry electronics churning against an inexorable underbelly of rhythm, while Farao’s crystalline voice soars over intoning a tale of retribution and personal liberation with cathartic poise. The first manifestation from sessions Farao undertook in Iceland last year with producer Mike Lindsay (of Tunng), “Hunter” offers a tantalizing taste of the intricate and enchanting material yet to come from this artist when she releases her debut album later this year.
