Flume Reveals Details About Upcoming Album
Aussie sensation Harley Streten, better known as Flume, has seen an absolutely meteoric rise to superstardom in 2014, and he doesn’t seem to done just yet. After an absolutely amazing performance at Coachella, followed by the release of his much-anticipated remix of Lorde’s “Tennis Court,” Flume has also embarked on his very own North American tour that sold out shows in over 15 cities. During our interview with him at Coachella, Flume revealed that he's working on a new album.
In advance of his headlining slot on the Listen Out tour, Flume sat down with Australian radio station triple j to talk and hosts Matt and Alex were quick to ask about Flume’s upcoming album. Luckily for all his fans, the album seems to be coming together quite nicely.
“I got a bunch of stuff down and it’s super exciting because I think it’s really strong.”
Promising something even bigger and better than his Insane EP, Flume told triple j that “from a sonic standpoint the new stuff sounds so much bigger. Every sound has its place, I feel like the first record was really finding my feet, figuring out what music I wanted to make… Now that I’ve done that I feel like I’ve got a much clearer idea of what I want to sound like and what I want to discover. It’s exciting.”
Flume is already considered one of the most creative and unique producers in dance music, and it sounds like his upcoming album will showcase his firm grasp on sound synthesis. Opposed to normal sounds, synths, and records, Flume has decided to look further to find sounds to sample - most notably, he’s been using Hollywood sound libraries and using sounds like an icicle cracking on a table or cartoon sounds. While he didn’t promise us any definitive release date, Flume was quick to share that we should be expecting something “really soon.” As for now, check out what he told triple j for yourself below.
