New Single Magical Thinking by Farao Explores Healing through Delusion


Farao's new single Magical Thinking explores the magical and delusional aspects of grief. Heavily referencing Joan Didion's book "Year of Magical Thinking," the song is a haunting ode to the grieving process, underlining that the delusions experienced during grief are a magical part of the experience.

Magical Thinking draws from the 90s R&B era, taking inspiration from artists such as Janet Jackson and Brandy, while also incorporating Bulgarian choir-style vocals.

The track is produced by Farao herself in collaboration with Ådne Meisfjord. It features Magnus Bang Olsen from The Zenmenn on DX7, adding depth and richness to the already multi-layered track.

Farao, the musical alias of Norwegian artist Kari Jahnsen, is a producer, DJ, and musician whose sound draws from a diverse range of influences including 90s R&B, sensual 80s disco, and contemplative spiritual jazz. However, what sets her apart is the organic quality that permeates her music, a unique characteristic that is entirely her own. Through her music, Farao deftly combines the organic and synthetic, creating a bridge that melds the two seamlessly and imbues modern disco/synth-pop with a healthy, beating heart. 

Farao also makes up one half of the electronic duo Ultraflex.



Jahnsen's work defies categorization and commodification at every turn. It's not in the least bit easy to create music that sounds truly like you and nobody else, but Jahnsen manages to do so.

Farao evokes amorphous feelings in architectural blurs of sound.

On Pure-O, Farao's synthpop stands alone. Kari Jahnsen’s second album as Farao is an accomplished, glittering synth-drenched mood piece.
