Australian singer & producer Chet Faker has been building a name for himself both in the US and abroad over the last few years. His recently released debut album Built On Glass (Downtown Records/Future Classic) has been garnering praise, and fresh off a sold out UK & European tour, he is set to kick off his headline North America tour today with a sold out show at Brooklyn, NY’s Output. He has already sold out most other dates on the tour including a second New York show, two Los Angeles dates at The Roxy, shows in Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego and more, and upgraded to a larger room due to demand in Boston.

Latest track “1998” has received raves from the likes of NPR Music, Esquire & Stereogum, and followed the release of single “Talk Is Cheap”–a track that crystallizes Faker’s wide-reaching aesthetic into a singular vision, fusing languid soul, classic songwriting intimacy, house music immediacy and the dusty thump of golden age hip-hop. Since the release of “Talk Is Cheap” in mid-February, it has received well over 3 million combined streams on YouTube & Soundcloud.

An artist of considerable range, Chet Faker-the name taken by the Melbourne-based songwriter and producer Nick Murphy-performs all of his own music, giving it a warm, homespun feel that also sounds like one of the world’s sultriest bands cranking at full steam.

Chet Faker Releases Debut Album “Built On Glass” & Animated Video For “1998”

“an immensely appealing blend of airy club music, ’80s pop, and melancholy singer-songwriter sounds. The song is superb, and its video is equally intriguing”Stereogum re: “1998”

Chet Faker has been building a name for himself both in the US and abroad over the last few years, and just released his highly anticipated debut album Built On Glass on Downtown Records/Future Classic. The Australian producer & singer also just released the beautifully stark animated video for “1998.” The video premiered on Stereogum, following the premiere of the song on NPR Music’s All Songs Considered last week. Directed by Domenico Bartolo and animated by Grace Lee, the visual links to classic house/rave music of the late 80s, combining references to Keith Haring and the psych-tinged but minimal art of the era. It also combines a narrative of the central character morphing into new forms as old relationships end.
