Nick Murphy, formerly known as Chet Faker, has just dropped his first EP since switching to his birth name. This 5-track project titled Missing Link includes a solid collaboration with Kaytranada on "Your Time" as we hear a new direction from Murphy.
We previously heard his loose singles “Fear Less” and “Stop Me” as Murphy continues to change things up here. While the sound we came to love from Chet Faker was a smooth blend of indie electronic and R&B, this new project brings a different sound. The Rock influence is strong throughout the EP with a more abrasive, guitar-focused sound while incorporating experimental electronic production. Some of the tracks are frantic while others have a more dance-based tempo as he even includes an entirely instrumental track “Bye”. This is certainly a different sound from Chet Faker and we’re excited to see how the project grows. Enjoy!
