Chet Faker – “1998” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

This week marks the release of Built On Glass, the full-length debut from Melbourne singer-producer Chet Faker. With the album’s unveiling comes the video for single “1998,” an immensely appealing blend of airy club music, ’80s pop, and melancholy singer-songwriter sounds. The song is superb, and its video is equally intriguing. Director Domenico Bartolo guides illustrations by Grace Lee through a series of metamorphoses inspired by Keith Haring, ’80s club culture, and putting one foot in front of the other in the aftermath of a failed relationship. Just keep pressing on, it seems to imply — and indeed you should proceed forward to watch this video posthaste.

Built On Glass is out now on Downtown Records/Future Classic. Check out Chet Faker on tour:
