One of Australia’s most accomplished young producers, Flume, has just dropped the killer new track ‘Some Minds’. Featuring vocals from Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt, the new song marks a step forward in his pursuit to push the boundaries of contemporary electronic music, with Streten explaining, “I am pretty hard on myself when it comes to being satisfied with new material, I am always trying to push myself. ‘Some Minds’ is a fully-fledged song, not just a track, which is what I was trying to achieve.”
‘Some Minds’ is the first original track since the release of his collaborative Lockjaw EP with Chet Faker. Though he’s released a string of releases, including Lorde, Disclosure and Sam Smith, it’s exciting to see some new music being released.
The track is accompanied by a fantastically eccentric video set in Sydney’s iconic Opera House. A collaboration between Flume and director Clemens Habitch (Tame Impala, Bloc Party, The Presets), the video features dance from Australian ballet member Callum Linnane and I must say, it’s refreshing to see a producer feature in their own video. The release of ‘Some Minds’ coincides with Flume’s sold out headline performances for ‘10 Years of Future Classic‘ at the Sydney Opera House’s Vivid Festival, which are his first Australian shows in six months.
