Chet Faker - Gold
In both video and song, Chet Faker excels at sultry simplicity. His smokey but fragile voice over the clapping, the serpentine silhouettes of roller girls.
The song is smooth, despite Faker’s Australian roots, he’s obviously inspired by Motown, Bon Iver and R&B. The girls’ (Appleusa McGlynn, April Corley, Candice Heiden) choreography a deliciously and buttery accompaniment to this feel good croon.
Gold is entrancing and perfect for late night listening.

p.s. if Faker looks or sounds familiar to you, it might be because his cover of No Diggity went viral awhile back.
Thanks to invincibeard for introducing me to this awesome track.
n. the tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it—whether through envy or pity or simple foreignness—which allows it to drift away from the rest of your life story, until the memory itself feels out of place, almost mythical, wandering restlessly in the fog, no longer even looking for a place to land.
