Chet Faker’s first EP release, 2012’s ‘Thinking In Textures’, marked the arrival of a truly unique talent and began a dream run for Australia’s freshest new artist. Two years in the making, his full-length debut brings together all of his influences, from house to R&B, and fuses it together with his smoky vocals. ‘Built On Glass’ is set to truly cement Chet Faker as one of the most unique artists of 2014.
The stats clearly point in his favour. After selling out London’s Village Underground in less than 24 hours, Chet Faker announced he’d be upgrading the show and has mirrored the feat by selling out London’s KOKO two months upfront. This was quickly followed by Bristol’s Colston selling out, while the compelling video for lead single ‘Talk Is Cheap’ amassed over 500,000 views on YouTube in under two weeks.
