The second full-length release for Nick Murphy under the name Chet Faker was self-produced. Hotel Surrender is a testament to Murphy’s skills as an artist and his attitude as a person.
Hotel Surrender must surely be one of the most cathartic records of the year. From the laid-back cool of opener ‘Oh Me Oh My’, it seems the Faker brand of chill beats is back. The self-production adds to the organic nature of the record, and is often quite bold, with strings and saxophones aplenty.
