Chet Faker—Nick Murphy to his pals back in hometown Melbourne—first hit the scene via his languid (and gorgeous) 2011 remake of Blackstreet's "No Diggity," and he's been working his warm, left-field R&B sound ever since. The Champagne glass delicacy of the beats place him in the same realm as James Blake, but lines like "Your thighs / Kisses on the outside, baby, that's all I need" underline his bolder nature.
