This gem sneaked under my radar in January when it hit the number 1 spot in Australia, the home of producer Flume who pulled together this heady, skin tingling electronic masterpiece. The arrangement is layered under the piercing falsetto of Canadian singer Kai who is a revelation of vocal talent. ‘Never Be Like You’ didn’t gain momentum in the UK, but I have feeling that could change as we move into the summer months and obviously, because my blog is so popular I can influence readers to listen to anything I praise.
‘Never Be Like You’ the diamond in Flume’s growing catalogue of single releases, trumping his recent collaboration with Tove Lo, ‘Say It’. NBLY is a surprising, sumptuous piece of electronic musical euphoria to take you into the hottest part of the year, kicking off with a light twinkle before exploding into its earth shattering chorus and it made me wonder, how I could have missed its magic for the past four months.
Flume’s sophomore album Skin is out now so you can go and drop some bills over the counter or you can listen to it on Spotify, here.
