Flume ft. Andrew Wyatt – Some Minds
Flume is back! Stop what you’re doing and listen to this song/watch this video. The music video is hauntingly effective at showcasing the increasingly complex sound Flume is known for the world over. There’s a lot of what looks like drone footage, juxtaposed with Flume moving along the way the heads in DBZ float around. There’s a reverence for the performance hall, specifically the Sydney Opera House in this. It matches the echoic, soulful future vibe of the track perfectly. Andrew Wyatt’s impressive chops support the “almost breaks it’s so future” provided by Flume in a way that is amazing.
And then 3:15 happens and he blows us and that away. The transition into the drip drop synth work is shocking and reminds us that he’s never to be underestimated or even anticipated. The movements seem to organically shift as the video effects person Flume got clearly knew what they were doing. It’s silky smooth, contrasted with the jutting nature of the synth. Absolutely magnificent. But, what did you expect. It’s Flume. If you do one thing this summer, pay money to see Flume. I know you won’t be disappointed.
