Bondi to Coogee

9. 1998—Chet Faker

You’re in the middle of a long travel day and there is nothing in sight but the everlasting prairies. Instead of freaking out about how small you really are in this big world, turn on Chet Faker’s new track, “1998”, to hear his soothing (and might I add extremely sexy) voice serenade you.
