EDITORS’ NOTES

If there’s one thing that binds the work of Australian bedroom production project Chet Faker and the group's lone member, Nick Murphy, it’s atmosphere. He’s a master of crafting silky, electro-pop mini symphonies that burst with emotion, even when he folds in noisier rock elements, as he does throughout the Missing Link EP. “I’m Ready” comes on with a blast of feedback and discord, while “Bye” opens with a strummed electric guitar before turning into a stomping synth freakout.

Missing Link = 👍🏻👍🏻

jennmae,

I love listening to Nick Murphy/Chet Faker on rainy days. The soulful sound of his voice makes the days seem cozier. ☺️ "Your Time" is my favorite track off of Missing Link, I can't help but dance to it. 😍

About Nick Murphy

Australian singer/songwriter Nick Murphy is best known for crafting atmospheric electronic productions under his former stage name, Chet Faker. Born in Melbourne in 1988, Murphy grew up listening to his parents' record collection and was influenced early on by the chilled-out jazz of trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker. Looking to avoid confusion with another Nick Murphy, he adopted the moniker Chet Faker, debuting with a downtempo cover of Blackstreet's "No Diggity" in 2011. The track went viral and helped launch Murphy's career. Several well-received EPs followed, including 2012's Thinking Textures and 2013's Lockjaw with Flume. In 2014 Downtown Records released his full-length album, Built on Glass, which debuted at number one on the Australian ARIA Charts. Despite his success, Murphy felt his sound was changing, and in 2016 he announced he was dropping the Chet Faker name and moving forward as Nick Murphy. That year he released the tracks "Fear Less" and "Stop Me (Stop You)." In 2017 Murphy delivered the Missing Link EP, featuring the single "Your Time." ~ Matt Collar
