Fans are still waiting on Flume to release his sophomore album Skin, but he has unveiled a few singles, which potentially reveal the direction in which the album is headed. Last month he made a big splash in his home country of Australia, which he rarely plays during a performance at Laneway Festival where he unveiled his brand new stage set up, which will be on the road this year and then brought out Kai to sing their track "Never Be Like You."
Live slips shot on cameras with bad sound and unsteady visuals have been on the web for a while, but Flume just released the live footage of that performance with multiple camera angles and good quality sound. The track was the No. 1 song in Australia at the time and it was clear because it seemed as though everyone in the crowd knew the lyrics.
During the performance Flume stands at the controls, twiddling with a few knobs, triggering some effects and noodling on a synth for the melody. Kai comes out to sing the song, with her voice sounding just as good live as it does on the record, while allowing the crowd to handle the hooks.
His new setup doesn't appear to be as monstrous as some others have put together for their tours like Eric Prydz, but the lit up boxes are a nice touch with fog flowing out onto the crowd.
Watch the performance below and stay tuned for more updates on Skin.
It was amazing to play to Australian crowds again last month. Thank you all for supporting the new single. Here's Kai and I performing 'Never Be Like You' at St Jerome's Laneway Festival in Melbourne
