Fae – Ruok

Fae is a danish duo formed by Jeppe Madsen and Matilde Böcher (both coming from a pop group called Battlekat). Ruok is their first release, an almost-ten-minute-long track that will surely capture your attention. After two minutes of a slow but intense electronic climax, the song starts with the overwhelming repetition of the word “ruok” (provided by Böcher’s elegant voice) that reminds us of some of the most famous pieces by Björk. Then the track keeps growing on a series of complicated virtuosities and it decreases quietly to a delicate conclusion. Ten minutes are quite a lot of time, but these really deserve to be listened.
