The Australian music producer drops the pseudonym with the release of his newest single “Fear Less” under his birth name, Nick Murphy.
The new single was dropped on Monday, and the sound of “Fear Less” as a whole is quite different from anything “Chet Faker” put out throughout the duration of his career. The opening section is quite slow and eerie, with Murphy’s voice drawling out lyrics in an almost “Thom Yorke” style smoothness. The track does pick up however, and it hits hard with a stirring drum beat.
Last Thursday was when Murphy took to his Facebook page to let his fans know about the upcoming transition. He wrote, “its been half a decade since I started releasing music as Chet Faker and all of you have been the driving force behind the music since.theres an evolution happening and I wanted to let you know where its going.the next record will be under my own name, Nick Murphy. Chet Faker will always be a part of the music. This is next.”
