Faroe is the solo project of Corentin of Concrete Knives (Bella Union), who is fresh from releasing a debut EP ‘Words’. Faroe first streamed the EP’s lead track ‘Blast’ on Soundcloud in Summer ‘15, gaining over 19k listens to date.
The intimacy and the minimalism that stands out at the start of Blast tells a lot of Faroe’s universe in that the song evolves gently, gaining in intensity with machines and textures surrounding what is really the core of this music: Faroe’s voice. For the accompanying video, Faroe felt an immediately compelled by a drawing of a bust by French-based graphic artist Nathanne Le Corre and felt that it suited the theme of self-construction well. The symbol eventually became the full concept for the video brought to life by 3D animator Elliot Martin.
