Song of the Week – The Trouble With Us

The Trouble With Us- Chet Faker and Marcus Marr

We have Twitter to thank for this snazzy song. Chet Faker obviously had a bit of a crush on the work Marcus Marr was creating, he tweeted a link to one of his songs and the pair connected online. They quickly realised they had some exciting ideas and came together to collaborate on the EP Work which was released in December.

The first single from the EP, The Trouble with Us, has taken Australia by storm. The fact it took out the #6 spot on the Triple J Hot 100 proves that. I imagine New Zealand’s charts are next in line for domination, or at least they should be.

This track is a fresh kind of funky. It features a sped-up piano base line, synth sounds of every kind, a bouncy guitar riff and that classic DJ style drum beat which immediately makes you want to dance. Faker’s exotic vocals blend the layers of sound together superbly. This song infects you from start to finish. ENJOY.
