Chet Faker – In-Between (Original Mix) [Free Download]
Winter storm Jonas has blanketed cities across the East Coast in the heaviest snowfall some have seen in years. One of those affected cities is Brooklyn, which Melbourne native Chet Faker has called home since 2014. While stranded at home and lamenting on Twitter about his inability to order pizza, the Australian produced a track inspired by the storm, aptly titled “In-Between.”
“In-Between” pairs a breezy, Latin-flavored melody and jazzy bongos with a 2015 vocal recording of New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, taken from a speech he gave during a blizzard in the city last year. “This will most likely be one of the largest blizzards in the history of New York City,” warns de Blasio in a déjà vu-esque similarity that is not lost on Faker. “I’m asking everyone to understand that and to prepare accordingly. This is not going to be like other snowstorms. It is going to be – by all indications – worse. And people have to be ready.” The combination of Faker’s signature light touch and the somber vocal overlay makes for a unique production that will last long after the snow melts.
