Built on Glass, Australian electro-crooner Chet Faker has kept a relatively low profile throughout 2015. Faker did team up with producer Marcus Marr to share Work, an EP replete with dancefloor tempos and an extra-synthetic veneer of sensuality, but fans of his solo work have received only a few remixes and a funky one-off single, namely “Bend,” to tide them over.
On Friday (December 18), Chet Faker delivered at least a little more for his parched listening base in the form of “Underground,” a spacey instrumental track uploaded to SoundCloud with nothing but a single “#archive” tag serving as description. Consisting of percolating drum patches and some extremely sparse instrumentation, it’s more than likely just a demo that never quite grew into fruition. Even so, it’s a perfectly lovely listen, full of the nocturnal sense of longing that Chet Faker imbues into much of his music.
