As Farao, Berlin-based Norwegian musician Kari Jahnsen established a trippy, textured mix of folk, rock, and whimsical atmosphere alongside ethereal vocals on her 2015 debut, Til It's All Forgotten. Three years later, her follow-up takes a left turn, though it's a wide rather than a sharp one, retaining much of her off-kilter electro-acoustic sound but recontextualizing it as dedicated alternative dance music. Titled Pure-O, the album was specifically inspired by Soviet disco and an obsession with the era's analog synths.
