Flume Presents ‘Palaces’ Full Length: Listen Now

About his latest LP, PalacesFlume said it was “kind of fragmented over years, adding “Doing a session with someone in London or doing this over here on tour. So to try and piece it all together and make it make sense and feel cohesive, I’ve added a bunch of tones and textures from the wildlife on the property.”

Influenced by Northern Rivers, the coastal town in New South Wales’ (NSW’s) where Flume fashioned the full length, Palaces reflects some of the Australian producer’s boldest, most eclectic sounds to date.

The DJ/producer/artist’s follow up to Skin, in interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Flume (born Harley Edward Streten) stated “I was always doing stuff on the grid,” adding that the realization that one “can really swerve” and doesn’t have to stay “on the grid” has “just become part of the DNA of what [he] does now.” The musician’s theory is evident throughout Palaces‘ 13 tracks that meld together seamlessly.

With respect to the album features, the cast of international collaborators includes NSW’s MAY-A, American singer-songwriter Caroline Polachek, British producer and composer Danny L. Harle, English-Icelandic musician-singer Damon Albarn, England’s Kučka and Quiet Bison, Spain’s Virgen Maria, France’s Oklou, Britain’s LAUREL, and Australia’s Emma Louise each touch Palaces in their own idiosyncratic way. 

Palaces was pre-empted by four singles, “Say Nothing,” “Sirens,” “Palaces,” “ESCAPE,” and “Hollow.” And with the rollout now complete, Flume’s next step will be deploying Palaces live around the globe, stating “We’ve got a new show, we’re actually going to be doing videos for all the songs, and we’ve just got an amazing visual team with Zawada and Michael Hili. And honestly, the show looks better than ever, better than it ever has in the history of Flume.”

Tickets to Flume’s world tour in support of the album are available for purchase here.
