Chet Faker has had a 2012 that most artists can only dream of, releasing an EP, touring Europe with Temper Trap, playing Meredith Music Festival and gaining a swagger of fans in the process. Now he has released a new video for single ‘Archangel‘ and announced a live sessions EP.
‘Archangel’ is a actually a cover or interpretation of a track originally done by UK electronic producer Burial (check out original here), and if you have listened to the original Chet Faker’s cover is pretty different. Naturally, it is a lot more relaxed and reminds me a little as though James Blake’s keyboard was replaced with a piano and he had learnt to sing properly. Chet Faker’s version is fantastic, chilled and leaves you wanting more.
Luckily, with a live sessions EP on the way, and a new full length album also in production, fans won’t have to wait long as 2013 is shaping up to be another crazy good year for Chet Faker
