We don’t know about you but we’re still suffering from post-Laneway blues, especially with Flume bringing the festival to a close with such beautiful visuals and an even more amazing repertoire. The ground was filled from the front, all the way to the back and sides where all the activity tents were; definitely more than the other years despite it being the last set. The Australian electronic music producer released a new single, “Never Be Like You”, on 15 January (two weeks ahead of the festival). It’s the first track from the upcoming release of his next album, “Skin”, and features Canadian singer, Kai, who has written for the likes of Jessie J, Rihanna and Janelle Monae and worked with Diplo, Skrillex and Childish Gambino. Kai’s mesmerising vocals sit perfectly on Flume’s signature bass work and stuttering synths, which we all can’t seem to get enough of. He’s finally released the official music video, directed by Clemens Habicht and stars Sophie Lowe from ABC1’s The Slap and Sam Reid from the British drama thriller, The Riot Club. The video follows a young woman who’s in a sort of warped emotional state; a dramatic and emotional video that shows a kind of remorse and regret of what she did the night before.
