Last week, the artist formerly known as Chet Faker announced he’d killed off his alias and that his next record, the follow-up to his 2014 debut album “Built On Glass”, would be coming out under his own name – Nick Murphy.
Earlier this morning on nickmurphymusic.com, there appeared a new single in the form of ‘Fear Less’.
Somehow you know
That something’s gotta go
You were scared to be yourself
For no reason
Starting with an ambient electonica instrumental layered with his recognisable vocals, the songs build until the drums kick into a snare-heavy chorus and turns the song into an explosive anthem.
Nick Murphy has taken a bold turn with this new sound but there’s something about it that makes us want to keep clicking that play button over and over again.
