A TAV Curator’s Pick.

Built on Glass is the debut studio album by Australian electronic musician Chet Faker, released in 2014.

Featuring singles ‘Talk Is Cheap’, ‘1998’ & ‘Gold’, the record shot to #1 of the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) Album Charts as has gone on to achieve platinum-status accreditation. Later that year, Chet Faker was the most nominated artist of ARIA 2014 Awards, being nominated for 9 and collecting 5, including Best Male Artist & Best Independent Release. – Future Classic

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.

"It’s no surprise then that on his debut full length LP, Built On Glass, the singer and producer battles with a knack for soulful vocal hooks and a talent for deep and down-tempo electro-centric aesthetic....Chet Faker also has a strong left-field sensibility that appeals to those more discerning music aficionados out there. This record is intelligent, succinct in its ambitions, and more than anything, it’s pretty bloody cool." - The Line of Best Fit
