It’s finally looking as though Flume‘s new album is right around the corner. The young Sydneysider has thus far released two tracks from his upcoming sophomore release Skin, and a video has now been dropped for the first single, Never Be Like You, featuring heavenly vocals from Kai.
The video was directed by Clemens Habicht, who also directed the video for Flume’s 2014 single Some Minds ft. Andrew Wyatt of Miike Snow.
Of the video, directly inspired by the track’s emotive lyrics, Habicht explains that, ‘It is the story of an emotional state – the delicious euphoric pleasure that motivates the sort of mistakes that precede remorse. In a confused state a girl loses control as she gives in to a delirious beautiful and grotesque abandon that blurs the boundaries between reality, sensation and perception as the world she is in melts away.”
Most recently, Flume also dropped the ridiculous banger Smoke & Retribution featuring rapper Vince Staples and Perth singer Kucka.
Flume will be releasing his sophomore album Skin later in 2016 via Future Classic/Mom + Pop/Transgressive in Aus, US and UK/Europe respectively.
