The clip starts with a shot of a dense forest. The cinematic backing track is ethereal and full of Flume’s experimental ear-tingling sound textures. As the camera zooms in, the foliage bends apart to reveal a colorful tropical bird chewing on an elastic string. Its feathers ripple outwards in psychedelic waves as viewers are transported into the depths of the bird’s eye. Gorillaz’s Damon Albarn sings “I float beyond the exit, there will be palaces,” as the screen fades to black.
Flume’s last album Hi This is Flume was in 2019 in which he broke the boundaries of electronic music in exciting new ways with unexpected collaborations and bold sound design. While he’s dropped singles since then, such as his remix of Danny L Harle‘s On a Mountain, fans are heavily anticipating his next full body of work. While no specifics have been confirmed, it’s expected his third album could release later this year.
