FARIDA, the solo project of Sweden’s Jenny Faridas, takes the swamp blues of America and transposes them to the primal forests of Nordic Europe on the darkly hypnotic Last Waltz.
A real musical marvel, the blackened blues and darkwave tones of the track part-enchant, part-terrify, drawing the listener like a moth to the flame. A bass line that feels like it could crush your chest and your soul, eerie electronica and vocals that sound like the personification of the blackest ever black all conspire to create a sense of attractive, but overwhelming musical awe. Last Waltz is as stunning as it is intense.

FARIDA is Jenny Faridas’ (voice, synths, noise) solo project backed up by Audionom members Pelle Backman (bass), Paul Sigerhall (drums) and Mårten Holmberg (guitar/synth), with live performances also featuring Martin Malm (visuals).
