Remember that story of the musician that ended up using Soviet-era synthesizers to create an album of forward-thinking pop music? If not, don’t worry, that’s what we’ll be going into today. Norwegian born/Berlin-based act Farao is back with a stellar album called Pure-O. It’s an album that reminds you that experimental music doesn’t have to be pretentious, and can often be the exact opposite. Within this episode of the podcast, Ken Grand-Pierre talks with Farao of what her goals were for the album and how an unexpected love of disco ended up inspiring her immensely.

“I like when you’re able to find different meanings out of a song.”
