Nick Murphy 'Missing Link' - A Short Film
According to Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker), 2017 was "a year of risk and exploration". It saw the release of his debut EP released under his given name Nick Murphy, titled Missing Link. The EP is a drastic change from the critically acclaimed album Built on Glass sonically, in a great, career-enhancing way. His sounds are more electric and eccentric, tossing aside the light, soft and raw production from his Chet Faker days.
He teamed up with KAYTRANADA on 'Your Time', which is featured in part in the below short film which includes several songs from his EP mentioned earlier. The short film was co-written and directed by Murphy and Australian filmmaker/musician Johann Rashid. The timing and selection of the Aussie Johann is due in large part to them being great friends, and being fellow country-mates. Nick is also about to embark on a mini tour, supporting LCD Soundsystem four nights in his native Australia, as well as performing in New Zealand, and in Phoenix in March.
Nick Murphy for sure will bring to mind some aspects of Chet Faker - the voice is inescapable of course, but even production-wise you'll find certain similarities. If you have yet to dig into his Missing Link EP, the 5-song, 22 minute project is worth your time. Check it out via the links below!
