A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Thinking in Textures is the 2012 debut EP by Australian musician Nicholas Murphy aka Chet Faker, originally released by Opulent / Remote Control Records in Australia, Downtown in the US and Chess Club in the UK.

“Hailing from the tight-knit disco and house music scene in Melbourne and taking elements from an acoustic past, Chet Faker has carved out a unique style that fuses personal stories of love and loss with an electronica soul that reaches far beyond his homeland.

Shrouded in secrecy, hidden behind an alias and disguised by a beard, Chet Faker enjoys mystery.

He came to everyone’s attention when his cover of Blackstreet’s classic ‘No Diggity’ hit #1 on Hype Machine, the worldwide indie music aggregator.

But far from rushing into the limelight, Chet built on the popularity of ‘No Diggity’ through a series of tracks released online, creating an insatiable hunger from fans for more from this part jazz, part soul and part electronic artist.

…An acclaimed debut release from the Melbourne musician. First single ‘Terms and Conditions’ is a gorgeously penned track that has been garnering airplay across the globe – everyone from FBi Radio in Sydney and Triple R in Melbourne to Mary-Anne Hobbs of XFM and Rob Da Bank of BBC Radio 1 in London have been playing the track.” – Remote Control Records

“Electronica with soul is the most apt description of the Faker sound, as Murphy dips and dives lyrically on love, lust and loss which accompanies the soundtrack harmoniously as it oozes subliminally to the mind.” – Sputnik Music

About Chet Faker:

An artist of considerable range, Chet Faker — the name taken by Melbourne-raised, Brooklyn-based Nick Murphy — writes, performs and records all of his own music, giving it a warm, intimate feel with a solid groove structure. His critically acclaimed, debut full length album Built On Glass was released on Future Classic / Downtown in April 2014. The album was the highly anticipated follow up to his 2012 EP Thinking in Textures and Lockjaw, his 3-song EP with fellow Australian producer Flume, released in late-2013. Chet Faker recently won five ARIA Awards including Best Male Artist, Producer of the Year, and Best Independent Album. He also took the #1 spot on the triple j Hottest 100, and the critics from The Guardian (UK) named him one of their "artists to watch" in 2015, among other accolades. – chetfaker.com
