    Run Fast Sleep Naked is pure escapism, from his grandmother’s living room to a studio in Tokyo, every track unveils a pivotal moment in Murphy’s journey and what could have easily fallen into the trap of being stuffy and overproduced excels in its minimalistic mastery and proves that Nick Murphy’s music is truly out of this world.

    There's plenty to dissect on Run Fast Sleep Naked, with subsequent listens revealing new layers and surprises. With this deliberate rebranding to a more authentic self, Murphy delivers a more genuine vision that is satisfying and brimming with imagination.

I liked the song Sunlight, but most of it has an 80s-synth cheesiness to it that I can't get past... I was waiting for Michael McDonald or Kenny G to chime in at any moment. I thought Sanity was somewhat catchy, but it crosses a line and comes off like the song in the credits for a rom-com featuring Adam Sandler or something. Clearly Nick Murphy left something else behind when he ditched the name Chet Faker. Expand
