Chet Faker – 1998

Watch it now...

Chet Faker's success has happened slowly, gracefully.

Taking his time to make sure each step, each new document is correct, debut album 'Built On Glass' arrived earlier this year.

Clash write Will Salmon was seduced, claiming that the LP "doesn't so much arrive in record stores as slink into them with a bottle of Cristal in one hand and a pack of Durex in the other."

Live highlight '1998' is a grinding, grooving piece of songcraft. Undoubtedly one of the most immediate moments on Faker's debut album, the track has been given the video treatment by director Domenico Bartolo.

A homage to artist Keith Haring and 90s rave culture, you can watch it now.
