Chet Faker offers short, sweet ‘Killswitch’

The sounds currently emanating from Australia are coming from some of the brightest minds in electronic music. Perhaps leading that pack, Chet Faker represents a different side of the spectrum with his expressive crooning and inventive, kaleidoscopic version of downtempo hip-hop and R&B-inspired production. His new single “Killswitch” is quintessential Chet Faker, as the Built On Glass B-side bonus track blends the Future Classic proponent’s sultry vocals with bold, poignant piano notes.

Hollow, distant vocals resonate over light keystrokes until halfway through the short piece. A simple, snappy drum rhythm eventually accompanies Faker’s smooth hook, but as with most of Chet Faker’s music, the cooling minimalism and the tempered might of his voice are the critical appeal.
