After bursting, beard first, onto the Australian music scene with his Gold-selling debut EP ‘Thinking In Textures’ Chet Faker has clearly not been resting on his laurels. The beard is out of the bag – his debut EP ‘Built on Glass’ is soon to be released by Future Classic and Opulent.
Chet said of ‘the making of’ the record: “I recorded the album at my home studio. I rent a small converted cooling room in the heritage listed North Melbourne meat market. Honesty is a big part of the record. I recorded with easily affordable equipment, the budget was tiny. It’s the first time I’ve ever worked on a full length and I felt like hi-fidelity wasn’t something to strive for working in a room on my own. Lyrically, I wanted to explore how my life directly affected my music – that’s the glass, I guess.”
Faker has been getting rave reviews the world over, casually winning ALL the awards and is set to play at this year’s SXSW Festival. ‘Built on Glass’ is available for pre-order on iTunes now and will be released on the 11th of April.
First cut ‘Talk is Cheap’ is available now. The video:
