For Flume fans, 2019 is the gift that keeps on giving. After dropping the 38-minute mixtape Hi This Is Flume back in March, the producer quickly released ‘Friends’, a slow burning single featuring US rapper Reo Cragun.
Now, he’s back with another single, ‘Let You Know’, collaborating with melancholic indie-pop outfit London Grammar. It’s a huge track, with singer Hannah Reid’s vocals sublimely complementing the song’s quintessential Flume sound.
“Hannah and I wrote Let You Know last summer. I was on a writing trip to London, was actually the same trip where I first met slowthai”, says Flume – AKA Harley Streten. “I have wanted to make something with Hannah for a long time and this one just came together really naturally in the studio that day.”
Reid echoes his sentiments, explaining that the pair had been attempting to work together for years before their schedules clicked into place. “We’ve been trying to work together for years but it just never worked out with our schedules but I’m so glad it finally did. Working with Harley was an honour because he pushes the boundaries of electronic music like nobody else. He’s the kind of electronic artist who will be around forever.”
Looking ahead, Streten has a huge few months of international touring ahead. You can catch him back on home turf in September and October, when he’ll be headlining this year’s Listen Out festival throughout the country.
